    Default Lanterns

    Ok there really is no correct section for this but figured I'd try here first. I'm looking for an old fashion handheld candle lantern. If anyone has seen the first Harry Potter movie it's the one Hagrid is using. It looks to have convexed glass sides to help throw the light. Crazy question but anyone know a company that makes lanterns anymore? Thanks

    I would try the Lantern section TG. It is in Beyond Flashlights - General Lighting Discussion - Lanterns👍.

    You mean you want a paraffin lamp? Or do you actually want to use a wax candle?

    I sure would. I didn't watch any Harry Potter today and my brain feels like mush lol.

    Don't worry that's the great thing about CPF, we all got each other's backs👍. There is no "I" in CPF after all😉.

    REI sells the UCO Candlelier lanterns. I use them for camping. I got an accessory kit for the single candle version a long time ago and it came with a spoon shaped reflector. Not sure if they still sell these.

    A quick Google search turned up a replica of Hagrid's lantern with a warm LED candle. Might be a kid safe alternative.

    Personally, I enjoy the Feuerhand Baby oil lamps. I got two of them from Vermont Lanterns.
