EGLOFF & CIE TURGI SUISSE 'HELVETIA'
Used by the Swiss troops both stationary and “wagons”. This Helvetia came to me covered in a
red - orange paint. Underneath was the jewel. In this particular restoration, the paint preserved the
integrity and beauty of this Swiss Lantern.
The clear Helvetia globe is original to the Lantern. I acquired a beautiful deep cobalt blue globe and it now resides in this lantern.
