19th Century Chinese Lantern with Gilt Lotus Finials

About

Embellished with carved and gilded lotus flowers, this ornate Chinese lantern would have originally been lit with candles to illuminate a very fine courtyard home in Northern China. Chinese lanterns 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. Each of the frosted glass panels framed in lacquered elm are detachable and fit precisely in the lotus frame like a puzzle. The frame folds flat when the panels are removed. Lantern can be hardwired by a certified electrician and professionally installed.
