Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a great example of the Luftwaffe Barracks Lantern (Leuchte). The lantern is made of metal alloy and has a beautiful silver paint that has withstood the test of time. It features a vented top that is 7.5cm in diameter, and four original frosted glass panels that add an elegant touch to the overall design. The glass panels have a wire handle and hook that make it easy to carry and hang the lantern, and each of them has two crossed wires to the exterior to protect the glass though one is broken. The lantern also has a small raised candle holder to the center of the lamp, which adds to its functionality.

The dimensions of the lantern are approximately 5" x 5" x 11" tall, making it a perfect size for various applications. The bottom of the lantern has four raised feet, which provide a stable base, and ventilation holes that allow for proper airflow. The bottom is also marked with a Luftwaffe eagle with FL UV, a symbol that represents Flieger Unterkunft Verwaltung or Flight Barracks Administration, along with GI BE and the date 1941.

Overall, the condition of the lantern is good, given its age and use. It has a few signs of wear and tear, which only add to its character and charm. Notably, all four frosted glass panels are original, although two of them are broken. Despite this, the lantern is still a stunning piece that will make a great addition to any collection or a unique decoration for your home or office.
