Circa: 1950 Country of Origin: United States Manufacturer: Mid Century American Production
I have two of these early 1950s boxed Coach Lantern lighted Christmas decorations for walls, doorways, fireplace mantles, or windows. They are 13-1/2" long by 6-3/4" wide, with a red cardboard candle inside and green C-7 lightbulb surrounded by a ringed Royal plastic candolier halo.
The plastic lanterns have a metallic silver colored finish which is peeling in places and gives the lanterns an aged, weathered appearance near the tops. They both light up fine as you can see with the halos and candles in excellent condition. Each has a 46" long white vinyl cord and Bakelite plug with soiling but no damage. The boxes have storage wear and are missing the cellophane windows but are intact with no tears. ***UPDATE*** One has been sold, one lantern remains.
