Item #: 4936-0912649 A very desirable Adams & Westlake No. 200 lantern that will be the star of any Denver & Rio Grande Western collection! This D&RGW Railroad lantern has lots of original tin and solid metal....very nice & straight! The Adlake-Kero No. 200 lanterns are the first and hardest of the short globe D&RGW lanterns to find now days. The frame has been lightly cleaned of oil and dirt, and still shows nice patina on the top lid. There is even some old red paint in areas on it. The lanterns top lid is embossed "D&RGW, Adlake No. 200 Kero, The Adams & Westlake Co., New York-Chicago-Phila.". The frame measures 9 ¼” tall without the bail. It comes with the original uncleaned Adlake #250 burner and fount that is in very good condition and will hold oil and burn. The 3 ¼” tall short amber globe is in excellent condition and is etched "D&RGW" on the front, and "Safety First" on the other side. The globe still shows light uncleaned soot on the inside of the globe, and on the top and bottom rim edges. It is lightly embossed with the Corning logo “Cnx” on the back side, and "Adlake-Kero, Made In U.S.A." above the etched "D&RGW". There are a few very small inside flea bites or rim flakes on the top and bottom rims. These are very small, and will not be seen in the frame. You can proudly display this rare Colorado railroadiana collectible in any room of your home!
