FROHLICH & WOLTER - FROWO 420  With 'Badge'

 FRÖHLICH & WOLTER - FROWO 420

With 'Badge'

 

This lantern came to me with a beautiful and quite heavy pear shaped globe that is embossed with the word 'FROWO'. This was most likely original to the lantern.

 

My most treasured globe, embossed with the Hünd, now resides in this lantern. 

 

Notable is the rare 'badge' on the fount.  This lantern has now all three accoutrements portraying the Hund (Dog), Fröhlich & Wolter's most recognizable and desirable logo.

Circa 1930

    Hello Judith,
    Metal Rescue is my first line of defense. Then, it is a lot of super fine steel wool and Mother's polish. You can also use Citric Acid for most of the surface rust at first and then a final 'bath' in Metal Rescue. I hope that helps!
