HELVETIA SWISS ARMY KEROSENE LANTERN WITH RED GLOBE - EGLOFF & CIE TURGI SUISSE

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 ws stripped and removed.  Once again, the paint protected the lantern from the elements.

 

The clear Helvetia globe is original to the lantern.  The red globe is a later edition.

 

Circa 1930
