Pair of Antique Train Lantern Lamps

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

These two signal train lanterns were converted into 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 these antique Industrial train lanterns with handcrafted wood bases and well-proportioned handcrafted linen shades makes them well suited for a variety of settings. The lamps have a chord switch and a dial switch at the base of the top light to allow you to choose which light source to use.
