WONDERFUL OLD TUBULAR LANTERN
C. T. HAM NUMBER 2
About 8 1/4" x 7" x 15" plus the wire bail handle.
Large railroad lantern with glass globe. Base embossed "C. T. HAM MFG. CO. / NO. 2." Clear glass globe, wire bail handle. Made of soldered gray metal, Crossed wire globe raising mechanism works smoothly, as does the wick riser. I understand lamps with these markings were made prior to 1915 when Dietz bought out C. T. Ham.
Overall excellent. Great old surface, nice dark metal patina & lots of original rust and barn grunge! (visible in the images). A FINE OLD EARLY 20TH CENTURY RAILROAD / BARN LANTERN.
