RE: [sig] hand held lantern and hanging lamp
- How about something like this Paul Revere Lantern? It's obviously post-period, but similar lamps are period. The difference is in the details of decoration. See the next link - the merchant doesn't give a date for it, but it's a "period" merchant website.
My understanding is the the "windows" were usually in the door, and could be horn, mica or glass.
There's some glassware on this page similar to your "hanging lamp"

And also, I would like more information/direction on where to find a
better example of this lamp. Does it look like anything you've seen?
