An alternative form of interior or exterior lighting: a roadworks lantern with LED string lighting. Second-hand.

This has sold.
We can let you know if we find something similar. Just tell us - you do not have to buy anything!

What's for sale?

This is a metal roadwork lantern with paraffin burner and complimentary, battery-powered, LED string lighting.

The paint is original, it's been cleaned and polished inside and out and ready to use, even as an alternative form of interior or exterior lighting. With that in mind, we're including a small string of yellow LED lights, powered by two CR2032 button batteries.

The construction is uneven, the paintwork is not too bad but still missing in many places. The lenses are undamaged. The paraffin tank is bone dry, in good condition and complete with wick.

The pictures showing it lit up and being held to indicate size are of another lamp.  The other photographs are of this lantern.
