BTH Rural Enclosed

I acquired this lantern from another collector in September 2004.

Lantern- BTH Rural Enclosed
Lamp- 125W MBFU
Manufacture Date- 19??
Control Gear- Remote
 Original Control- Unknown

The lantern holds a 3pin BC holder, and was set up for a 125W Mercury lamp. I also acquired a set of 125W gear with this lantern- which included an original BTH Capacitor. The lantern is missing its outer globe, as well as its glass refractor ring, so needs some restoration, but it is internally complete - with all parts for the lampholder and holding the glassware. (the refractor clips were removed for storage purposes)

There aren't any of these lanterns in use in Plymouth, although there are some Urban Enclosed lanterns on private land in the city. The only example in use locally is in the Devon town of Newton Abbot.
