1900-1905 E.T. Wright No.2 Pin lift

The No.2 CB pin lift was one of E.T. Wright & Co’s first designs. In 1900, shortly after Kemp came out with their corrugated corners, the other Canadian lantern makers came out with their own corrugated ‘crinkle’ tubes, ETW included.

This model uses a pin connected to the globe plate rather than a side lift to lift the globe up. A hanging piece of metal soldered to the pin is used to lock it in place. The globe inside it is a No.2 ETW Rubber Crystal globe. The globe has the 1908 patent date on it, so it’s not quite correct but it’s close enough.
