‘Bearcat’ Lantern

WebBurgessFlashlight   On sale 20% off  $145  $115

Made by the Burgess company, the red ‘Bearcat’ focusing camping lantern was a standard of the 1950s.   It would typically have come with a large 6V battery, which was missing when we found this, so we’ve reproduced it’s shape and size with a wooden base which has been painted and distressed.  We’ve also added a typical Burgess logo to the ‘battery’, as well as added some style with a length of red cloth-covered cord.

Size 6″ x 5″ x 8″ (15cm x 12cm x 19cm)

All electrical components are new and UL certified.  Comes with a candelabra base socket, 15 watt bulb as shown and approximately 6 ft of black-coloured vinyl cord with an in-line on/off switch. Note that the red cloth cord is purely decorative and no electricity runs through it.
