Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne & Chicago Ry brass top, bellbottom railroad lantern made by the George M. Clark & Co. of Chicago, Il, in the late 1880's. The lantern is prominently marked P.Ft.W. & C. Ry. The 6-inch, ruby globe is has cast letters PENNa.. Co, and is outside flashed with a layer of red glass having high gold content, giving the globe an irridescent look in certain light. This lantern has a brass heater tube in the oil fount for cold weather service. Clark lanterns have a striking eye appeal and look very similar to comparable Adams and Westlake lanterns, except for their unique, frame bail attachment
