Bronze Empire Style Entry Hall Lantern Light Fixture
- Source: eBay
Heavy solid cast bronze entry lantern with glass cylindrical shade, made in Spain. I believe this is quite old but I am uncertain of the exact age. It is well made, cast of a heavy metal which appears to be bronze, (please see photos). The top canopy is adorned with 4 faces (see photos). I would estimate the weight at 25-30 lbs. T is a small notch on the inside of the lantern (not visible when hanging) w it appears someone sampled the metal, which is clearly solid brass or bronze. The entire fixture measures 28 inches tall with the attached solid cast finial. The lantern itself, with attached dome canopy is 18 inches tall and approx 11 inches wide. T is a central, standard bulb socket, newly wired. Takes up to a 100 watt bulb. The fixture will need a more thorough cleaning and polishing to really bring out its full potential. I would prefer to ship the lantern and shade separately for safety purposes. Shipping will be only exact cost as I do not charge handling fees. Exact amount to be determined by winning bidders zip code at end of auction. Good luck bidding.
