E.T. Wright & Co., Hamilton, Ontario Red and Clear Lens Railroad Oil Lantern
Here is a great antique railroad lantern manufactured by E.T. Wright & Co out of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This black painted metal lantern has two convex glass lenses - a clear one with a wide reflector, and a red one with no reflector. The lenses are in good condition with no cracks or noticeable chips. This is an oil burning lantern that uses a wick; no wick is present, but the wick knob operates smoothly. The lantern has a handle on top, and a clip on the side for mounting. There is wear throughout in the paint, and some minor denting.
