Old and improved!

Found a couple of old rusty lanterns and decided they would look good in my gun room, I added 110 V LED lightbulbs but left the globe dirty to conceal the update

They look pretty good. I think you need a bigger room.

I guess that you got the idea from O. Winston Link.

The famous photographer known for dynamic pictures framed around steam locomotives. He also had kerosene and other lanterns as props. He not only rigged them with electric lights but even with timed flashbulbs for a given effect. While they are made to look spontaneous, all of his photographs were very artfully staged.

The lamps are pretty cool, I’m betting there’s a market for stuff like that.

Very nice! The lanterns look like they belong in that room. Looks like a great place to relax and chat about guns.

Absolutely love the rustic look of your man cave. Wish I had the room for something similar.
