I found this recently in a local garage sale. It looks old, not sure if the globe was the original match to can, but what I'm interested in is the CN on the bottom. I understand that this type of lamp is sometimes refered to as a switchman lamp ( not sure if so?) but wondering if the CN on bottom relates to Canadian National Railroad and if it is real railroad memorabilia. Sometimes I see CNR on items and this time just CN. Wonder if its the real article. It does have the pink, orange coloring on the bottom that was consistent with CN colors. Would anyone have any ideas on this? Thanks.
