Rare Antique Jewelled Glass Victorian Lantern Rise & Fall Lamp Hand Enamelled. Stunning Victorian antique rise and fall opaline glass lantern. Decoratred with hand enamelled coloured daisys with gilt stems and foliage and inset with twenty one coloured jewels. All photos taken indoors and outside in good daylight. The glass shade is in good condition with no chips, no cracks or restoration...There are signs of usage wear with odd scratches with. Some rubbing, marking to enamelling and gold gilt. The brass fittings have odd dinks, tarnishing etc...
With old polish residue and a slight distortion on lower pierced brass lamp holder. The top gallery crown has been re-holed at some point... All noted but nothing major and does not detract in anyway from this superb lantern. For illumination purposes a 40 watt bulb was used for indoor lit photos to give you an idea... Originally a candle or oil peg lamp would of been used...Ideally an led lantern or similar could be used rather than electrifying.... Left as is for new owner to decide. Measures around a 28 overall drop (top to bottom). Though the chains can be shortened say 6"/7". The glass jewelled shade measures around 11"tall with a diameter at widest point of around 9".
