A neat example of the make-do mentality of the 19th century, and the days when everything was used to the nub with nothing thrown out till it was totally used up with no repurposing application, this Civil War vintage lantern found continued even after the globe was broken. With the chimney and burner likely used to repair another lantern, two wood slats were fitted and placed in the body so as to hold an available whale oi burner, add a house lamp chimney and wha-lah a very adequate portable lantern. With obvious age and period use, this charming original to the period, make-do lighting device will fit well in any mid 1800s setting. 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!
