Primarily constructed of steel, this unmarked trench lantern measures approximately 12.5cm tall by 5.5cm wide (without the handle). Painted predominantly in black, the lantern features 3 clear glass windows that remain wholly intact. To the interior, there remains a lump of wax and a short wick showing some use. The handle exhibits features normally found on German lanterns including the rounded shape and wooden carry handle. An excellent addition to any Imperial German display.
