Minor’s Patent Folding Lanterns. Stenciled on the side of each (within floral decorations) is: “Minor’s Patent, Jan. 24th 1865.”
Everything is made to collapse, for ease of carrying. Inside, the sliding candlestick folds under a storage compartment (at the back) for matches and extra candles. The original mica glass is intact.
Measuring just the lanterns themselves and not the facades: the largest measures 6 high by 3 3/4 wide by 4 1/2 deep, and the smallest, 4 1/4 by 3 1/8 by 3 9/16 inches.
