" Union Pacific " Embossed 5 3/8" Lantern Globe, A Century Old:
* UNION PACIFIC * 5 & 3/8" Heavy Glass embossed clear Globe. Near perfect condition, the only two flaws noted were on the top inside edge of the rim. A couple flea size chips. One would have to look for them to notice and find them. On the top edge is embossed " PAT. DEC 30 1902 # 717501 ". This is in reference to the Globe casting mold. There appear to be five or more air bubbles in the glass. There is a very slight hint of purple, which is indicative to early glass casting of a century ago. The Globe is free of any cracks and the lower rim has no chips or visible flaws. This style / type of Gobe is not too common & not often offered without a U.P. lantern. Inquiries or questions can be E-mailed. Good Luck with the sale.
