The Mary Rose ship sank in 1545 and wasn't found until 1971... There were 18 of these lanterns recovered. We've kept these as close to original as possible. Pegged construction, wire handle and aged tin candle cup.. I'll take the wire handle off for shipping.. It will just slip right back on...

wooden plates will show all the character of a 200 year old plate.. warping, knife marks, burned edges on some, all with a smooth, scrubbed surface.

In the 18th century, glass was a precious commodity and when a piece like this was broken, the owner went to great lengths to make it usable again.. I searched for many years and did see one once, but wasn't able to buy it.. Don made these for me to add to my little bar area.. Pair them with one of his old tavern bottles and the look is so early..
