About

We had a pair of these lamps, but have sold one so we are offering the second on its own. This signal train lantern was converted into an electric lamps with two light sources; the red lens light from the body of the lantern and the conventional lamp light. The unique combination of this antique Industrial train lantern with the handcrafted wood base and well-proportioned handcrafted linen shade makes them well suited for a variety of settings. The lamp has a chord switch and a dial switch at the base of the top light to allow you to choose which light source to use.
