Antique Neoclassical Style Glass and Ormolu Lantern

About

This fine, antique lantern was made after an 18th century model for the Chateau of Versailles in the 1700s, and takes the octagonal 'Versailles' or 'beehive' form. The main body of the lantern surrounding the light is formed of an ormolu lattice with flowers at the corners which holds panes of beveled glass. The lower ormolu finial of the lantern is of pine cone form, and to the top of the lantern is a semi-spherical ormolu mount featuring draping, topped by a stylized acanthus leaf form fixture beneath the hanging chain.
