Mr. Morgan combined easily obtainable items that one would have had access to as a civilian in our time period and made a candle lamp/lantern.
He used the globe from our oil lamp, we havenít been able to get oil in some time, and put it over a candle. To keep from breaking the globe, he made a wooden base for it to set in and included wooden runners to attach a bale and to keep the globe from being knocked over.
Now, it seems to me that this little lantern made from period materials that were readily available and bearing some resemblance to metal candle lanterns that I have seen is something that others may well have put together. I am looking for documentation of similar items and I would appreciate any help or ideas that anyone might offer.
