Collectible Lanterns: A Price Guide

Lanterns shown here were designed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries to light primarily homes, barns, railroad sidings, and maritime locations. The images shown were compiled from patent drawings from 1871 and 1872 as well as sales catalogs dating from 1894 to 1922. Today, many people collect and own lanterns without knowing their history. This book sheds light on their styles, manufacturers, variations, and value ranges on today’s market.
