Medieval Lantern, Wood and Rawhide (Parchment)
This handsome medieval lantern is hand-crafted from painted wood and genuine rawhide (parchment). It consists of a round base plate and an upper ring connected to each other by means of 8 rods. The cylindrical body is tightly covered with parchment – this thin leather is sewn and securely nailed to the wooden frame.
The lamp is equipped with a metal socket fitted with a thorn to ensure a steady hold of the candle. The convenient lifting device mounted to the socket allows you to pull the candle out easily to light or replace it without risking burning your fingers.
The parchment lets the light shine through and provides a soft and pleasantly warm glow. When placed on a table at night, the lantern creates a beautiful atmosphere both indoors and outdoors. What’s more, it has a handle made of braided rope by which it can be carried or hung.
Both decorative and functional, this lovely wooden lantern is not only an ideal prop for rustic historical settings such as medieval markets / camps and reenactment, living history or larp events, but also a fine ornamental piece for your home or garden.
