Offered is an Antique Collectible nicely stamped in front position: T&OC Ry Toledo & Ohio Central Railway Tall Globe - Bell Bottom Lantern made by the STAR HEADLIGHT CO. Stands 11" tall to top of dome and has 6-3/4" bottom diameter. The lid & Bottom is also stamped: 2 COR. It appears the bellbottom has a uniform star pattern of 5 holes and were filled in by a previous owner or by a Railroad shop worker?
I've seen this before, not sure what the intent was? Base globe is real nice, having a bold strike in a rectangle border panel and no major damage. E Miller 1 Burner has a small dent on one side of top dome and works good with a wick.
Twist-off bell bottom is real nice too showing wear from age and use. Overall a real nice condition lantern and harder to find than the drop in pot bell bottom frames.
