This is the larger Convex pyramid model .
Stamped A&P N.Y. on the top
The large brass push in no.2 convex burner is marked Archer & Pancoast on one side and Patented March 1st 1864 on the reverse. 

One of the glass panels is painted "ONE IF BY LAND " P. REVERE 

One if by Land Two if by Sea

The origin of the phrase

“One, if by land, and two, if by sea” phrase was coined by the American poet, Henry W. Longfellow in his poem, Paul Revere’s Ride. It was a reference to the secret signal orchestrated by Revere during his historic ride from Boston to Concord on the verge of American Revolutionary War. The signal was meant to alert patriots about the route the British troops chose to advance to Concord.

Unsure why this is painted on this lantern , maybe to make reference to a 100yr anniversary?

Condition  - very good for its age and delicacy of this lantern type.
Dark brown rusty patina all over , but no heavy rusting or pitting present. 
Looks to have had the glass tabs replaced with brass ones , hardly noticeable if you've never owned one.
Glass panels are in good condition with no cracks .
No visible condition issues present.
