27H x 14 in diameter

Location: Dallas


This French antique oil lantern, fitted with solid bronze quatrepod bases and brass mantels, was designed in France during the latter half of the 19th century during a period where things chinoiserie were all the rage. This example is subtle in its design with an unusual glazing treatment that appears to have depth, with even more subtle embossed design in the porcelain. Electrified by our expert staff, it has been fitted with a hand-sewn silk shade. 

Circa 1860s.

Measures 27H x 14 in diameter.
