This very unique end of day lantern was probably powered by kerosene. It has a thick wick that runs through the white tin tube and rises into the cone top. There is a glass face covering the front of the cone which, once opened from the bottom but does not seem to want to now so I've not forced it. The lantern is 7 inches tall and the round base with a rolled tin finger hole is 4 inches across. The lantern has its original green paint and, as you can see, shows some wear from age and use. I've not tried to clean it up, leaving that decision to its new owner. It's a charming, and unique, piece of primitive lighting with lots of charm.
