EGLOFF & CIE TURGI SUISSE 'HELVETIA'
Used by the Swiss troops both stationary and “wagons”. There are currently two of the troop models in my collection. This Helvetia came to me with silver paint on it and it was stripped and removed. Once again, the paint protected the lantern from the elements.
The clear Helvetia globe is original to the lantern. The plain red globe was a later add to the lantern (what you see in the photo gallery).
***AS OF 5/2021, A BEAUTIFUL RED ETCHED HELVETIA GLOBE WITH THE SWISS CROSS WAS LOCATED AND NOW RESIDES IN THIS LANTERN AS SEEN IN THE MAIN PHOTO.***
