    This is a small (about 10" tall) lantern/lamp that has no identifying marks that I can find. I haven't seen another one like it. Anybody have any ideas as to what this is?
    Thanks!

      This looks like a bow lantern for a canoe or cat boat. It is missing the green lens and tube.

      Thanks slackjack, that explains why I couldn't find anything like it when I was searching railroad lamps and lanterns!
