You are offerding on a antique, patent dates, 1888, 1893, 1893 patent applied for C.T. HAM GEM cold blast lantern. This one is in very good condition. Hope the pictures tell the story. It has an embossed on globe: Dietz Junior, cold blast N.Y. U.S.A. and on the reverse side R C. Not familiar with the glass company R C mark. Dietz did buy out CT HAM in the early 1900's.
