Green Boston Lowell and Nashua Railroad Lantern New England Glass Whale Oil:
This is the last time the lantern will be listed on before it goes to a New England railroad sale for consignment.
This might be a one of a kind lantern. I haven’t found anyone who has seen another green globe BL&N left in existence. It is a New England glass fixed globe lantern with the 1854 patent date clearly stamped on the bottom. . Everything is intact including the original coating on the lantern. The letters are wheel cut and are exactly like other examples. A red version sold on in 2016.. this lantern is believed to date to around 1857/60when the Boston and Lowell agreed to operate with the Lowell and Nashua as one line. The base and fount has been replaced but it is correct for the lantern.
You will not find another one in the same condition and the green globe might be the only one left.
It will be shipping fully insured so you will need to sign for the delivery.
Free shipping and insurance is included with the listing
