Client had a vintage DIETZ lantern that was her fathers many years ago. She wanted to surprise him with it as a Christmas gift.
Lantern finish was left as found. A light protective clear coating was applied to preserve its patina.
Lantern retrofitted with a realistic style flickering LED candle with remote control. Lantern stand base consists of 100 plus year old cypress wood. The wood is retained by an antique wagon wheel hub ring from an old farm in Arkansas. Vintage style rose head copper nails accent the perimeter.
