A magnificent, extremely rare and huge antique French Parisian Hanging Lantern crafted from iron and stained headlight glass. It has a superb bombe shape with an opening door (for originally placing a candle), but now to change a bulb. The wiring and fitting is so old we recommend replacing with a new fitting (by a qualified electrician of course). The 86cm chain is exceptionally long and if not needed that long would look wonderful draped (or remove part). This would have been taken from an old home with extremely high ceilings. Amazingly this has no cracks or breaks, just some light surface rust in some places which would clean off if desired. This is “as found” in France and we have only given it a very quick clean so it could do with a little more. The glass is gold and opaque white (although it does appear a little greenish on our monitor).
SIZE approx: 73cm high plus 86cm of chain x 27cm wide on each side
