This lantern is one of the short lived E.T.W short globe lanterns. These lanterns were only made for a short time between 1926-1928 because of a lawsuit from The Adams & Westlake Company and Hiram L. Piper against E.T.W. If you’re familiar with Adlake Kero lanterns, you’ll notice this lantern is a close copy of an Adlake Kero.
This lantern is pretty much all original with so much tin plating left. It has a cast CNR Mckee Glasbake globe, made by the Mckee Glass Company of Jeannette, Pennsylvania. It’s believed these are the globes that originally came in E.T.W short globes, however I don’t have evidence to back that up. Also worth noting is the P scratched into the very top of the lantern. Likely that was the first initial of the railroad worker who owned the lantern.
