Perkins Lantern Date?
Perkins Lantern Date? by J.Liskey

Does anyone know of any books or websites that would include
information on this Perkins Masthead Lantern? It says "Perkins
Marine Lamp Corporation" "Brooklyn New York" on the
front. It is about 15" tall. I have looked extensively on the
internet and have found reproductions but no originals. I am
curious about the date. Thank you.

Sir or Ma'am: Thank you for reposting with an image! The
company name you cite was in use by itself from 1916 until 1920,
when the "Perko" trademark was added. The combined name
and logo was used until 1961. I have no Perkins catalogs to
reference, but looking in "Lanterns That Lit Our
World", Book 2, your lantern looks to me like the Navy
Torpedo Boat masthead light (WW II). That's the only image I
have with a profile that shape. :: Fil Graff ::
