    Beautiful! Did the ca 1860 lantern design not use a shutter to open or close off the light? Thanks! And I have this page linked on my page about Dark Lanterns, https://darklanterntales.wordpress.com/what-is-a-dark-lantern/

      Not all of these style of lamp had blinders, and some blinders were actuated with a finger finial just below the lens instead of on the back and top of the lamp. We opted to not go with a blinder.
