Buffalo, New York & Philadelphia brass top bellbottom railroad lantern made by the Buffalo Steam Gauge & Lantern Co., around 1875. This lantern is unique among BSG&L lanterns of this era because it has a narrow, as well as taller than usual chimney made specifically for a 6-inch globe with a small diameter top. The brass top style contours are typical of SG&L lanterns, but the diameter is smaller. The flashed ruby globe is 6-inches tall and is cast with BNY&P in a rectangular panel, matching the lantern marking. The oil fount is a two-tab, Sangster spring style with a wide, pick-wick burner and a purple velvet wick, all original.
