What's for sale?

This is a metal and glass railway lantern in red, with complimentary, battery-powered, LED string lighting.

It was made by Kenyons and features their Serilight lenses. It's a larger and heavier construction than the roadwork lights such as the Batchlee lanterns. The door is also properly latched and three sides feature a reflector.

The paint is original, it's been cleaned, sealed and polished on the outside and is ready to display. It's missing the original parafin burner but can still be used as an alternative form of interior or exterior lighting. With that in mind, we're including a string of 30 white LED lights, powered by three AA batteries (batteries also included).

These lamps were subject to industrial use, so their rough condition should be expected. The lenses are intact however.
