Left as found as preservation of period use and originality, this working condition lantern offers a good amount of its original japanning finish and retains the original burner complete with coal oil residue from period use. Solid at the hinge, with that thick bulbus glass lens from which these lanterns derived their common name, the internal sliding shade moves freely to darken the light for security and to facilitate use as a signal lantern. With well documented Civil War use by both Union and Confederate our supporting illustrations highlight use by the later with an illustration of a recovery from the Confederate submarine Hunley that sunk in 1864 and became the subject of a major recovery project 136 years later. Also shown is the cover of the May 17, 1862 Harpers Weekly depicting use by Confederates. This standard size example measures approximately 6 ¾ inches and is about 3 ¼ inches in diameter at the base.
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!
