Needed a lantern for the Candlelight Tour at Ninety-Six National Historical Site in Ninety-Six, SC.

Built of Pine and measuring 5 1/2” wide by 5 1/2” deep by 11” high. Note the use of snipe hinges and the wooden window glazing.

That’s really sharp. The punched tin lid really sets it off. My question, is this a reproduction of a period piece?

Not a reproduction per se … I just based the design off of photos and drawings.

Thanks! Great job on your Victorian Reading Table … I made an Edwardian book shelf a few years back for a friend (too bad I didn’t take pictures).

Thanks! Sorry I haven’t been back to this page before now … the hinges are called snipe hinges and are nothing more than cotter pins.

This lantern looks like an original antique. You did a wonderful job on it.
