Add historic charm to your home with this Mini Dark Lacquered Tin Lantern! Hang the lantern from the included ring on top or place it on a table or shelf. The lantern features a punched hole design that allows light to shine through, casting a subtle pattern on surrounding objects. The front of the lantern opens on hinges with a latch closure, and inside is a candle holder that fits a small taper candle. For use indoors or in an outdoor protected area. We recommend using battery operated candles in this lantern. (Candles are not included.) Measures 6.5"H x 2.5" diameter. Imported.
In a time before electricity, lanterns were the colonial-era equivalent to flashlights today. In the Historic Area of Colonial Williamsburg you can see lanterns at use on buildings, carried by our Actor Interpreters, and even on our carriages.
