- n. In. architecture, same as lantern, 3.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
It led downhill to three antiquated quays, a number of moored boats, and a very large church with a lantern-tower.
That is a marvellous place; its massive lantern-tower, with solid, softly - moulded outlines -- for the sandy oolite admits little fineness of detail -- all weathered to a beautiful orange-grey tint, has a mild dignity of its own.
Formerly the red-tipped lantern-tower had attached to it a bungalow, where invalids resorted for fresh air; it has now fallen to pieces, and two iron seats have taken its place.
