Ava's watchman lantern

The design for this lantern has a couple of unique features that I have not seen on other original lanterns.  The first is the tube handle with a cap.  I assume this was to hold a spare candle.  The other is the door for the chamber under the candle cup. I suppose this was for holding fire starting materials?

The lantern is 13" tall, the body is 5.5" in diameter, 7" with the handle.  The panes in the photo are amber colored reproduction mica but I am now using the light colored mica, like the ship lantern panes.  The lanterns are painted with a black oil paint finish.
