SOLD Neoclassical Glass Bell Jar Lantern

$895.00

Neoclassical Glass Bell Jar Lantern. Bell jar lanterns first reached popularity in colonial India and production has continued to the present. The glass disk at the top was originally to catch smoke from candles or oil, and in the electric era has remained as a purely decorative element. This bell jar lantern is a late 20th Century reproduction. Made from delicately blown glass, frosted and cut in a hatched palm pattern. The glass is suspended by three beak like hooks on an ornate ring. The bottom of the lantern is finished with a bronze finial. It has a three light cluster in the center. Metals are finished in a dark bronze. Complete with canopy and hanging hardware.

Some great hanging ideas are on the blog “Meet me in Philadelphia”: http://meetmeinphiladelphia.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-bell-jar-lantern-five-easy-pieces.html
