This is a tough find for a rare Colorado narrow gauge rail line. The D&RG was before the Denver and Rio Grande Western which began in the 1920's so this globe dates from the late 1800's to early 1900's. The globe itself is in great condition... Thick glass with no chips or cracks.There is some discoloration but the glass itself is nice, even along both rims of the globe there is little to no wear. There are a couple small air bubbles in the glass, normal for the era of this globe. Of the globes I've had from this era, this one is the strongest and thickest glass.
A very nice find from this popular old railway train. The D&RGRR lettering is clear. The globe measures approximately 5.25 inches tall and approximately 4.25 inches at its widest point so it would go in the taller railroad lantern, not the shorter/newer version of the globes. A nice antique railroad item for a serious collector. The item "Denver & Rio Grande Railroad Lantern Etched Globe D&RG Colorado Narrow Gauge RR" is in sale since Thursday, November 21, 2019.
