Default Re: Glows, Glowbaskets or lanterns, two types or more?

OT: Notes I put this information as a reminder. :bush: With moving I can't find my books
Glow: a chemical light source which is put into specially designed baskets that are mounted (to a wall) or can be carried by hand.
Glowbasket: a basket that holds glows. It can be carried as well as put in a (wall mounted) fixture. Glowbaskets can always be closed. In the earlier times on Pern candles and lanterns were obviously still in use as they are mentioned in Dragon's Fire [Dfire].
It sounds like they are lanterns too The Chronicles of Pern: First fall
