When I brought this home from my mom's house I sat it on my pie safe. Only a few days ago did I read the writing on the base of the lantern.
It says No2 Cold Blast C. T. Ham Manufacturing Co. Rochester, NY
I decided to see if I could tell how old the lantern was. I have not yet discovered it actual age but did find out that C.T Ham sold it's lantern company in 1915 making this a lantern that could be close to 100 years old! I am excited!
