Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Lantern. This artifact is of unknown use and origin. The body of the container seems to act as a font leading up to a cloth end with scorch marks, on the base of the artifact is a stamp spelling C&O RY. One speculation for the use for the artifact is that it may have served as a tunnel torch for lighting tunnels.
