This lantern is approx. 28 cm tall, including the handle. It was made by "HUGO ZWEIGLE ESSLINGEN aN" and there is an Eagle and Swastika and "DR" (Deutsches Reichsbahn)stamped on it on the back. Look at the foto to the left. I drew a circle with my computer around the Eagle so that you could see it. The lantern looks like it works. Collectors' Guild had one for $325. Go look at it. Theirs is post-war painted. Mine is original in every way. CLICK THE IMAGES TO SEE THEM BETTER. NOTE: THERE IS ONLY 1 PIECE OF CLEAR GLASS IN THIS LANTERN. THERE WAS NEVER MORE. THERE NEVER WAS A RED OR BLUE PIECE OF GLASS. THIS IS NOT THAT KIND OF LANTERN! AND IT NEVER WAS! I SUPPOSE YOU COULD PLACE A PIECE OF COLORED GLASS IN IT, IF YOU MUST HAVE ONE.
