"Scottish lantern” December 2016. Edinburgh. Scotland.  Lanterns are a protective enclosure for a light source - usually a candle - to make it easier to carry and hang up, and more practical outdoors or in draftee interiors such as passages and staircases where unguarded candles were more likely to blown out by gusts of air - not just from wind but even opening a door.
