NIER - D R PATENT WITH ADLER (Heinrich Friedrich) GLOBE
(Type 2 = predecessor type for the FH 202)
Early D R Patent Kerosene lantern which is a Type 2 version. The globe is a very early Heinrich Friedrich Adler Globe. Not only is it embossed 'Adler' underneath the imposing huge Eagle, but it also has "Eagle -Aiglon'. Translated in French, 'Aiglon' = Eaglet. This is one of my most 'bubbled' hand blown globes. Very heavy and embossing.
