Another offer from our 50+ year accumulation of treasures, this important gold wash, presentation grade lantern is cut inscribed on the globe to ’Mrs. T. M. Anderson’ and was gleaned from a vintage rail road collection where it was attributed to Elizabeth Van Winkle Anderson who, turns out, was the wife of Brig. Gen. Thomas McArthur Anderson. Offering evidence of age and period use with some metal cracking, a small ding in the base rim and some burner staining on the inside of the chimney, this M. M. Buck & Co., St. Louis marked lantern remains in pleasing condition retaining its original bright presentation grade gold wash finish and with no chips, cracks or imperfections in its inscribed globe . (Our photo illustrations will offer the best physical description of this beautiful old lantern.) The name M. M. Buck & Co. will be familiar to vintage railroad collectors with the more standard version of this lantern illustrated as The Boss model conductors lantern in their 1880 and 1900 catalogues.
Married to Elizabeth ’Lizzie’ Van Winkle in 1869, Thomas McArthur Anderson enlisted as a Private in the 65th Ohio Volunteers at the outbreak of the Civil War and, through the influence of uncle, General Robert Anderson of Fort Sumter fame, was commissioned to 2nd Lieutenant of the 5th US Cavalry. Promoted to Captain, he served through the Civil War with the 12th US Infantry. was twice wounded, brevetted to Major for his conduct in the Wilderness Campaign, then to Lt. Colonel for exemplary service at Spotsylvania Court House. After the Civil War he remained in the Army, rising to Colonel, in command of the 14th Infantry. In 1898, with the temporary rank of Brigadier General, he commanded the first troops to reach the Philippines. In command of the 1st Division, he saw action in the battles of Santana, San Pedro, Passe, and Guadalupe in the early months of the Philippine Insurrection. He was promoted to Brigadier General in March 1899 and retired from active service in January 1900. Both interred at Arlington National Cemetery, Mrs. General Anderson’s obituary noted that she had ’shared her husband’s distinguished military career with him both at home and abroad’.
A desirable lantern for the railroad collector this attractive presentation grade offering will carry special interest for the historian and Americana enthusiast. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
