FWIW. That thing has no place on a ship, or in a mine. I thought ships lanterns were able to self level, so they moved with the roll of the ship, and didn't tip over, and as for mining, explosive gases, and open flame lamps don't mix. JMHO

The Griswold tag is for a three burner stove.

OIC. Thank you Will. No chance they used the same P/N for this piece?
