New Exhibit

Russ Jausel has loaned us some of his prize lanterns from his personal collection to display in the gallery. Comet, Skater’s, Dietz Scout/Sports and Bicycle Head lanterns are small ones on display. Then we have a Triangular Lantern (1887-1910), Beacon Lantern (1913 – 1930), Tubular Square Lantern (1888-1894), Defiance Perfect Lantern (1914–1930), Junior Inspector’s (1914–1924), and a Non-Sweating Adlake Lamp (1879-1923).
Saying that this collection is a fabulous one is an understatement. Come see.
Better yet, get Russ to come with you and talk about them.
