Best described by our illustrations, this classic 18th early 19th century candle lantern stands 11 inches not counting the bail handle and measures 5 inches square at the base not counting the protective grill. All completely original and as found, this classic early lantern is offered untouched and as acquired after decades of barn storage. Solid in all respects with no condition issues and a desirable natural age patina that some may wish to lightly clean (horrors!) but we'd limit that activity to little more than a dusting and the addition of a period tallow candle. A nice every day, country lighting device dating from the later 1700s through the Civil War era. Buy with confidence! We are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with return as purchased on direct sales! Just send us a courtesy e-mail to let us know your item will be returned per these provisions and your purchase price will be refunded accordingly. Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!
