Yard sale lantern find

Postby Osage Outlaw » Fri Sep 02, 2016 8:26 pm

I picked up this lantern at a yard sale today for $5. The model # is L43-S. I've looked it up and I think its a Preway from the 1930's - 1940's. It looks like its in decent shape. It will look good with my rustic camper.

Good find, those don't show up very often. Hope you get her to burn.

Ditto, hope it can be fixed up and run.

I'm curious about the homemade looking clamp gadget on the bench (with T-handle and box tube). Wonder if it is something you use for making your bows(?).

Great find. And do not see those globes with the lighting hole in them often.
