    I'm from Bulgaria. I have the same lantern, inherited from my grandfather. I can't find glass for it here. If you can give me any link to buy glass I would be grateful.

    Beautiful! I've never seen a 158 with the bee on the font. Great bat & lantern logo on the globe. It's a shame that it's fragile paint and not acid etched frost.
