19th Century Style Miners Lantern
My grandfather was a miner (a bit later than the 19th century I might add) but I'm not sure he ever had a lantern as attractive as this one. Whilst the shape is very much in the traditional style, its powder-coated finish in shutter blue makes it more decorative than the real thing ever was. The light is provided by adding a tea light inside the lantern.
It costs £10 from Illustrated Living.
