Original Cobalt Blue Humphrey Lantern

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

You don't see these in cobalt often. It in beautiful condition with the original globe and matching shade. Note the hole in the shade to allow the chain to hang straight. We kept all the original gas components when wiring for a standard bulb and did not lose the lamps character. The globe is milk glass and can glow white or cream based on the bulb used.
