Early 20th Century Chinese Courtyard Lantern

About

Lanterns in China have a history that goes back over 1,800 years to the Han dynasty: during the Lantern Festival (which falls on the 15 day of the first lunar month) people hang lanterns to symbolize finding a fresh start. An elegant and austere rosewood lantern like this would have been hung in an aristocratic Northern China courtyard home. Each of the handcrafted panels are detachable and fit together in the frame like a puzzle. The frame folds flat when the panels are removed. Lantern can be hardwired by a certified electrician and professionally installed.
