Antique Gasoliers Lantern Hall Light Hexagonal Brass & Stained Glass C 1880 40"H
A relatively rare, very attractive and highly collectable brass and stained glass hall lantern or gasoliers light pendant. It has a brass body which is hexagonal in shape and is decorated with fleur de lys, leaves, scrolls and columns. The lantern is Victorian and dates to circa 1880.
The glass panels are all original and are frosted clear glass with flashed ruby edges and painted in ruby and orange and brown enamels with some small elements of cutting to clear glass.
The six upper suspension brackets are double scroll shaped and are bolted to the central acanthus leaf shaped aperture rose or ring. A gold painted metal suspension column with suspension ring is fastened to the central aperture rose or ring.
The lantern has an overall height of 40 inches from the base to the top of the suspension ring. The lantern section from the leaf shaped rose to the bottom is 25 inches and the hexagonal shape is 11 inches across the corners and 10 inches across the flats. It weighs 3.448kg unpacked.
It is in very good antique condition. All original stained glass panels are present, two are cracked one has a small corner missing, as can be seen in the photographs. No gas nor electrical fittings. A standard electrical pendant light could easily be fitted.
This is a great item to add to any collection of lighting or for use in a large high ceiling town house or country house.
Please note that due to the volumetric weight (50kg) of the packed lantern international shipping prices are almost prohibitive. Please message for a firm price to your location
