    Hello everyone! Found this interesting lamp thingamajig?!? All copper, flat bottom, no markings anywhere. It has three attachments....a cup like holder, a box with lid, And an oil lamp. The inside has 2 rails going across in the center and there is a compartment underneath. Has a handle along the top for easy carrying. Ive never really seen anything like it so any info will be greatly appreciated!!! 20200712_130630_compress77.jpg 20200712_130700_compress69.jpg 20200712_130859_compress91.jpg 20200712_130830_compress17.jpg 20200712_130816_compress42.jpg 20200712_130757_compress66.jpg 20200712_130741_compress91.jpg 20200712_130712_compress36.jpg

    Google miners/ railroad workers lunch pail / lantern combos. You'll find similar if not identical ones.

    It was polished at some point so im sure that doesnt help showing its age....

    All the ones I've seen are polished, sometimes made from copper too. Cash symbol designs are common, just like this one.
    Early "to-go" thingy.
