I have a very old circa 1850 glass sided lamp lantern with primative shaped outer ant wire handle on top

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

The top rain cover looks to be cut out of a portion of a rounded steel can.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
