A fine gilt bronze and glazed hall lantern, probably French
Sold for £1200
A fine gilt bronze and glazed hall lantern, probably French, of pentagonal section, the arched sides with openwork scrolled crestings and with winged zoomorphic mounts supporting chain swags from the corners, with scrolled feet below, the five scrolling supports rising to a ceiling fitment with hanging ring, 80cm high, 42cm wide
Please Note: This lantern is of first half 19th century make
The lantern is in perfectly presentable condition, although two panes of glass are missing. These could be easily replaced.
The gilding is certainly original. It is worn away in places and these is mottled tarnish in places overall, but the gilding has an attractive dark and rich hue.
The various mounts are cast seperately and fixed with screws/bolts. Some of these are a little loose.
Some of the supports rising to the ceiling fitment are a little bent. These could presumably be easily put right.
The electrical fittings will need to be renewed.
