Vintage English Arts and Crafts Lantern Edwardian England circa 1910

A tall and slender vintage English Arts and Crafts hexagonal lantern with an elaborate metal frame and custom coloured glass panes from Edwardian England circa 1910. This unique lantern has a gorgeous frame of metal tracery that creates a sense of lightness even though it provides secure support for the amber coloured glass. The combination of the patinated metal with its golden colour is entirely complementary to the colour of the glass and when the lantern is lit casts the most amazing warmth with its glow. Interestingly two opposite sides of this lantern have been fitted with clear glass in order to increase the amount of light cast when the lantern is lit. The lantern is suspended from an open ring with six chains that attach at each corner of the hexagon. The upper section of the frame is wider and has the feeling of a hood over the entire piece. Each of the six separate upper sections of the frame are framed with a wide border of the metal while within there is a pattern made of more slender components that have a rounded and arched shape. The contrast between the wide bands and the more decorative tracery creates the charm and attractiveness exhibited by the lantern. Please note how the lower border on each of the upper sections has a pair of arches with the more slender tracing. Each of the six vertical panels on the lantern also have a border that is the same scale as the upper hooded section. These strong vertical lines again serve to frame the delicate tracery pattern of the internal metal work. Please use the zoom feature on our website to see this lovely design and the texture of the glass panels. The long slender lines of the metalwork meet at the top just beneath the hooded areas in an arched pattern that contrasts beautifully with the amber glass as well. The entire lantern has been rewired for American electricity and is fitted on the interior with three sockets that will each accommodate a standard base bulb. This ability to house three bulbs gives the lantern the ability to cast a bright light to illuminate a hallway, stair landing or room with ease while furnishing a warm and enchanting glow.
