This is my version of the German antique lantern found in the Mark B Ledenbach collection!
I have made a similar one before but never this size! This one stands 9 inches high and the hanger adds another 3 or 4 inches. It has a removable bottom plug, painted paper inserts for eyes and mouth and cut paper teeth. It can sit by itself on a table or hung form the hanger. He could be a cute candy container for a child, too! He will be varnished with a thick glossy polyeurathane. Will probably put him on eBay tonight for a seven day auction!
