lantern symbol?

Most of the ACS characters are self-explanatory, but the exception is
ACS_LANTERN, which is only described as a "lantern symbol". I've never
been able to find a reference to what character this actually was.
Most implementations either don't render this symbol, or else show the
graphic representation of ASCII 12 (U+240B), for reasons I can only
guess at.

Does anybody know what the lantern symbol actually looked like on an
actual VT-100?

(Sadly I've only once had access to a real, physical VT-100, and it
was in a situation without a machine to connect it to.)
