ITEM: Hand Held Railroad Lantern

CIRCA: 1910s - 1940s

MANUFACTURER: (embossed with authentic maker's marks)
Lantern = Dressel, Arlington, N.J.
Globe = Kopp

- Pat. No. 2157081 embossed on bottom.

MEASUREMENTS: 8" diameter x 15" tall (with handle) and 3 1/4" globe

CONDITION: Excellent! Extremely clean and completely functional!

NOTES: I'm uncertain if yellow was the original color, but I doubt it. Normally, these lanterns were a drab gray color. However, if it *was* hand painted, it was quite well! Please convo me with any questions or comments. Additional photos, details, etc. may be available upon request.

SHIPPING: All posted S&H costs posted are *estimates*. If discrepancies occur in excess of $2.00 USD, you will receive either an invoice -OR- a refund via PayPal. Frankly, I've no interest in profiting from the S&H, nor do I appreciate or respect receiving this as consumer. Unfortunately, discrepancies occur per the ever-fluctuating and widely varying USPS rates. I take the utmost care and consideration when packing each and every item I ship. Additionally, I do my best to use the most item-specific, cost-effective shipping methods readily available. With that, I'm more than happy to tailor all individual shipping requests within my ability.

PAYMENTS: Orders should be paid immediately.
If PayPal is your chosen payment method, your shipping address must both:
1. Be identical to your Etsy shipping address. If they are not, further proof must be submitted before shipping can take place.
