19thC French Brass Rococo Revival Hall Lantern

DOE AND HOPE
The attractive brass hanging lantern of shaped pentagonal form in the eighteenth century Louis XV manner, being almost three feet high, the open scrolled frame having a beautifully aged verdegris patination with rococo style scroll mounts and pierced cartouches, the whole surviving from nineteenth century France.

The lantern is in as found condition with the piece in stable structural order. The whole has a simply wonderful, aged patination to the surface as per the photographs. The glass panels are all absent and there are losses to the brass decorative mounts in places. It could easily be wired for electricity or used with candles.

Experiments in Europe and America, after 1750, helped to improve the lamp, and when whale oil became plentiful in the early 1800's, lamps became as common as candles. This particular lantern would have hung in a large chateau big enough to bear it.

With the imposing size and beautiful finish, and after the appropriate work being carried out, this would make a wonderful statement centrepiece in an entrance hall or above one’s dining table.

'Doe & Hope specialise in decorative, rare and unusual antiques from around the world with a particular interest in the atmosphere that surrounds an object, taking a cinematic approach in the presentation of our inventory. Our house style is probably best described as theatrical; being a concoction of old money, dramatic decorative, and faded gentility, with common themes of both humour and the macabre running through our inventory, that includes both academic and playful objects.

We are members of LAPADA and were included in Homes & Antiques '50 Best Antique Shops' in the UK for 2016. We have had a concession in the prestigious Liberty of London department store in 2015 and have also won the Antiques Young Gun of the Year award for 2014.
