Occasionally,  I receive Lanterns like this one; in fairly bad shape, missing or broken globe, sometimes in pieces, rusted, and absolutely NOT working....



First I tear down the lantern and begin a meticulous inspection and cleaning process. Each part is inspected for damage and replaced. If the tank shows signs of rust or excessive paint loss, I consult with the owner to discuss the repair and whether a paint job is desired. (Some collectors simply want the lantern repaired, cleaned up and restored to working condition.)...





As you can quickly see, once I have reassembled the lantern and make my final adjustments, this lantern is restored to a like-new condition.....


And finally, a completely restored and working lantern, guaranteed to give many years of dependable service.

If you have a lantern that is in bad shape and would like to see it restored to 
a beautiful, completely working system, give me a call and we can discuss your need
and available options.
