Here for sale is a fantastic antique magic lantern. Included is a R R Beard Eclipse slide carrier which was patented in 1886. We assume that the lantern predates this date. 

The Lantern has been recently converted to take an electric bulb, probably to make a quirkly lamp rather than it's original use. 

We are selling the lantern as a decorative item, not as a working item. Please check photos carefully before bidding to check if the lantern meets your needs as we have not checked that all parts are present. 

Lovely and unusual item that would look fantastic as a vintage prop. 


Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

We are a family company and love sourcing unusual pieces which bring a burst of individual style to the most modern of interiors, creating interiors with soul!
