CNR Railroad Lantern Black 1920's No. 508
This is a Canadian National Railroad, (CNR) Conductor's Lantern. From the HIRAM L. PIPER CO. LTD. (Canadian division of Adlake Co.) with an amber globe.
It has "C N R" and Hiram L. Piper Co. Ltd. - stamped on the top.
This vintage lamp has been fitted with an electric socket, an Edison light bulb and a antique style twisted electrical cord. So now with a flip of the switch you see a nice warm red glow. The lantern has been freshly paint black and looks very nice.
Please note: No attempt has been made to make this piece new. I like to keep old pieces with age and history, clean and showing their age.
It stands 9 1/2" tall and 6" wide.
