I made these in two sizes, these lantern stands were ideal for any historical encampment. The 6-inch stand-off arm ends in a hook, ready for your coal-oil lantern or shielded candle. The 4-inch twisted top allows you to use a hammer to drive the shaft into the ground. The point is slightly hardened to make penetration easier and reduce damage in rocky soil. Forged from 1/2-inch round steel. Final height above ground depends on how deep I plant the shaft.
