Roy Rogers battery-operated metal cowboy lantern from the 1950's, completely intact (still has bottom plug and bulb), and in wonderful condition. Manufactured by Ohio Art Company and decorated with brightly colored lithography images of Roy, the Roy Rogers cattle brand, longhorns and arrowheads. The Ohio Art Company logo is on the side.
Born in 1911, Roy Rogers made his first appearance on Los Angeles radio in 1935 singing Western music, beginning his film career in Western movies in 1937. From 1952 to 1957 he appeared with his wife Dale Evans, his horse Trigger, and his dog Bullet, in 101 episodes of his nationally syndicated weekly television western. Roy Rogers' name and images on lunchboxes and toys were wildly popular during the 1950s with kids throughout the US.
Nice sharp colors with very little wear. Very slight indentation on top, very few light scratches. Inside is not rusty and bulb still works (battery not included).
