American Pickers: B & M Railroad Lantern
This was for the American Picker tracker.
The television show, which showcases hidden treasures found within backyards and barns, is a favorite of mine. I love antiques and historical items and so it was just natural pick for me to do this series. I had so many ideas and it was hard for me to narrow down my choice. I ended up just gravitating to these old lanterns that were used during the heyday of railroads. This was not an item that is usually featured on the show but i just liked the history behind it. I tried to make the glass case stand out a little with the color and have some copper color accent the handles. In the end it could have been smaller carve and could have been designed a bit better but it was a decent card.
