FRÖHLICH & WOLTER - FROWO Nr. 120
This is the elusive and hard to find Frowo Nr. 120 Lantern. There is very little documented information on this lantern. With the information that was given to me by an expert on Frowo lanterns, this is what is known:
This lantern would have had a globe guard (cage) and that part is missing. The rust you see was fairly easy to remove with Metal Rescue. The rest was a lot of love and polish.
What a journey this lantern has had! It was made in Germany in the late 1920's; found its way somehow to Australia. Then, with the amazing assistance of Matthew Magliton, who was in possession of this lantern, he graciously sent it on its way across the ocean to Portland, Oregon. A HUGE thank you to Matthew for letting me showcase this incredible treasure on my website!
CIRCA: 1927 (?) - 1929(?)
