@Peter: Yes ;) We got our lantern from them. It's the only one I currently know making such panels.
@Johan: Obtaining horn panels is not the problem- obtaining _thin_ ones is it.
Of course you can buy those and divide those- but that's exactly what I was talking about when mentioning that it is a pain in the **** ;) ;)

It says they are good for lanterns, but of course there is no way to know until you have them in your hand... :?

But the ones from Sweetness and Light are OK for lanterns?

Ah. As said, we have a lantern from them; the horn plate is really thin - less then 1mm i think, and gives a good light.
But beware- it's not that stable and the candle should be securely fixed :roll:

Right. I guess I'll order plates from them as soon as I get around to it...

Die Rivets are in my opinion definitive for fixing horn panels together.
But the text is really great- it tells us at least that there seem to have been lanterns with blanterns- but tnat those were considered being bad :)

I normally do not dig out such old threads, but since I have a photo of the original of the lantern from Schleswig I thought I might as well post it...
