This photo was taken for theme "Monopoly Tokens" in The Flickr Lounge .

This is an old lantern hanging in my braai area (BBQ area). It was converted to electrical. It was left by the previous house owner when I moved in.

"The lantern is tied at the hip with the rocking horse. Both were added at the same time and removed in the 50s when the Scottie dog, the wheelbarrow, and the horse and rider were added."

Thanks Chris! It might be very possible, the person who left it to me was very old himself already. I will have to look at the markings and do some research..

Thank you Linda, the vignette (I think) helped to give the lantern a sort of subliminal shinning effect.

Druppels val maar ver van mekaar af hier by ons........

Ek het geen idee hoe oud die lantern is wat ek geplaas het nie, maar dit is baie oud. 😁
