The USSR Soviet Train Conductor Lantern is immediately recognized as an antique candlestick lantern. These lanterns were used throughout the USSR Soviet Railway system which was not electrified at the time these lanterns were in use. Conductors would place a candle inside of this lantern which would then be lit, giving them a portable light source to use while working on and moving inside of the train. Like most Soviet designed items there is an industrial artistry quality to the lantern that is immediately appreciated once you see one. The design makes it easy to mount the lantern to a wall where it will surely provide your home with an antique that is both practical and affordable to personalize your space with.
