Mounted on its musket shaped oak parade staff and remaining in outstanding original condition, this wonderful old parade lantern retains its original camphene burner with patriotic red, white and blue glass panels. (With its frost etched glass panel, this offering mirrors the design and color configuration of a Lincoln / Hamlin red, white and blue parade lantern documented in the Smithsonian National Museum collection.) Retaining its original burner still fitted with the telltale extra length small diameter, tapered brass burner tubes specifically designed to handle the clean burning and especially bright but volatile camphene fuel. Popular in the 1850s with the use of camphene (a mixture of turpentine and alcohol) as a lighting fuel waning in the early 1860s, this lantern easily dated in the Civil War period. Measuring approximately 4 feet, 9 inches in overall length mounted on its oak musket staff, the 5 inch square sheet iron lantern body measures about 11 Ό inches in height from base to the top of its brass chimney cap. An outstanding piece of Civil War vintage patriotic / political Americana, this rare parade lantern will be of special interest to the Lincoln and Wide Awake enthusiasts as well as Civil War historians.
