OK, time to come clean before this get out of hand…. This lantern is a fake. I was bored Saturday night and cooked the idea for this lantern up. The only truth to the entire story is that a friend gave me the lantern. The globe is some 1/8â€

Good one Jeremy... See if you can get it to run on some "juiced" up Vodka, that would make for a perfect joke.

The bit that makes me doubt it is the portrait of Uncle Joe - what's he doing on an American-designed product, even if that product was built by the proud hands of a glorious worker?


I had no problem with it being a Russian copy of an american product, its not like they haven't done it before.

This all makes me think. They probably did build such things back in the USSR.
