An unusual pair of early iron-framed nautical lanterns c. 1850, (perhaps Gimbal? lights?). These lanterns have thick magnification glass shaped like melons to enhance the light and use wax candles as fuel instead of oil or kerosene. Open bottom, with wood handles. These rare lanterns can easily be electrified or re-purposed into a nautical table lamp.

CONDITION: Very good for their age and use. The joints and latches are a little stiff but free. The fit is tight and the glass is unbroken.

DIMENSIONS: 11" high, 7.5" diameter

WEIGHT: (A) 4 pounds, 12.5 ounces, (B) 4 pounds, 9.6 ounces
