Mystery Clamshell « on: July 22, 2021, 02:52:25 PM » Author: joseph_125
I spotted this clamshell show up in the local classified ads recently. It's missing the glass and I'm not sure what exactly it is. Anyone have any idea? $75 is a bit much for something missing the glass or I'd snap it up.

I believe this is a Westinghouse OV10 lantern.

I was thinking that too as the early Westinghouse luminaires (OV10, OV10IB, OV12, OV14B) were the only small sized luminaire to use a unique refractor pattern.

Definitely an OV-10 !! Finding the refractor will be close to impossible though ! :(  At least the ring the refractor mounts in is still there ! Try making the seller an offer .

If you put it up and used it without the lens, than you'd have a rare FCO clamshell  :lol: 8)

The seller accepted my offer and I just picked this up. It's indeed a Canadian Westinghouse OV10. I'll post some pics up later.
