    McKinley & Roosevelt: "Full Dinner Pail" Tin Lantern. A collector favorite, these are usually found with assorted dents and surface rust, but this beauty is in excellent shape. The mounting for a candle is inside as well as the original paper to accentuate the lantern's slogans "McKinley and Roosevelt" and "Four Years More of the Full Dinner Pail" glowing through. McKinley's first term had been one of prosperity, and American workers still vividly remembered the troubled economic times of Cleveland's second term, 1893-1897. Accordingly, this full dinner pail theme resonated with voters in 1900, and is to be found on a wide range of campaign novelties of that year. Height 8.625", not counting original handle.
