Rock Island Lines Handlan Double Wire Guard Lantern with Clear Cast Corning Globe.
Item #: 3631 Here is a very nice Rock Island Lines Handlan double wire guard lantern with a clear cast Corning globe. The lantern stands 10 1/2" tall without the bail, and has been cleaned of oil and dirt, then hand polished. There are a few minor dings on the top lid of the frame from years of use, overall in very good condition with a lot of tin and solid metal. There is some surface rust inside the fount holder, no pin holes. The outside of the fount holder is solid metal & tin. It comes with the correct Handlan fount and burner, which is solid with lots of tin, no pin holes. The 5 3/8" tall clear cast globe is cast "Rock Island Lines" in the rounded edge rectangular panel, and is marked with the Corning logo "Cnx" on the other side. The top rim of the globe is in excellent condition with no rim chips. The bottom rim does have one very small ¼" inside rim flake that will not show when in the frame. Here is a very nice Midwest railroad lantern that will display nicely in your collection!
