coleman lantern restored for purpose.

My dw's birthday is july 4th so with her unusual fascination with coleman lanterns I thought I'd think outside the box and restore a 200a 1963 vintage lantern for her in Red White and Blue.
I finally recieved the hat today after being sent out to have a new porcelain coating on it.

This is the way I received it.

A very unique gift and I would like to know who gave you the idea to give it as a gift- I know you didn't think of it on your own
