Really haven't paid much attention to deaf flame lanterns. Dates to the early to mid 30's. Don't know if that straight globe cage wire is early or later in that production run.

The two tone does seem a little odd.I had a scheduled vacation next week, so the first chance I have to pick up the collection is the following week. I tried to get in to the house tomorrow or Friday, but couldn't work out a time with the Seller so all I can do for now is dream about what might be hidden back on those shelves.
