FR. STÜBEN - ERFURT BAT 2850
D.R. PATENT - REDLINE
This lantern came from Bolkow, Poland. There was a fair amount of rust and some deterioration of the tinning. The original red paint on the globe tray could not be saved and it has been paint matched and repainted.
The reason I wanted this particular Bat Nr. 2850 was because of the globe. It is an incredible, very old, hand blown Fledermaus Globe.
This glass has a triple mark:
- Made in Thuringia (front)
- Made in Germany (behind)
- Fabrique en allemagne (back).
CIRCA: 1927 - 1930
