    Found this lamp in a thrift shop and cleaned off the tarnish. Majority of the lamp appears to brass except for the baffle just above the lamp. It appears to be nickel or nickel plate. There are no identifying marks on the lamp or globe that we can find. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.

      Commonly referred to as a "Conductors lantern" or "Presentation lantern" this is not your typical thrift store find! The lantern is made of nickel plated brass. Your model looks to be a C. T. Ham and is a great find!
