D&RGRR Handlan Lantern w/Unmarked Dark Tall Amber Melon Globe
Item #: 0527725
Here is a very nice Denver & Rio Grande Railroad Lantern with a very old, rich, and dark amber melon globe. The Handlan frame is in excellent condition with lots of tin, and has been cleaned of oil & dirt, then hand polished. It stands 10" tall without the bail. The top lid of the frame is embossed "D&RGRR, Handlan, St. Louis, U.S.A.", and the bottom is marked "Handlan, St. Louis" with the patent dates. The 5 3/8" tall unmarked globe is a very dark root beer colored amber, and is in very good condition. There are a few minor outside rim flakes on the top rim, and one small inside bottom rim flake, which will not be seen when in the frame. The lantern comes with the correct drop in Handlan fount and burner that will still hold oil and burn. Here is a Colorado railroad collectible that you can proudly own and display!
