The good news is that the styles today are much more varied than they were in the days of David Copperfield. While old world styles are still very popular, modern designs have taken significant creative leaps, accommodating every home and garden scenario.
In the Victorian era, gas lanterns were the staple, with a traditional Hexagonal shape and forged in bronze or copper. In modern times, many lanterns are still made of copper or brass, some with lacquer coating, or you can get the same look in a cost-effective, powder coated, lightweight aluminum, for a hard-wearing finish.
The simplest form of a lantern, and most likely the first, is the candle lantern. A candle is placed in a metal box with glass sides and an open top. We all know of the kerosene lantern, also referred to as a hurricane lantern. This type lantern was commonly used from the 19th century into the middle of the 20th century. This lantern, or a version of, is still used by campers and other outdoorsmen. The kerosene lantern is ruggedly built for portability. The metal chimney and side tubes supports the glass globe and enhance the draft of air reaching the flame. Horse drawn carriages, railroad cars and ships were other early uses of the kerosene lantern.
