Regency Hand-Blown Clear Bell Jar Lantern, London, circa 1790


This rare early neoclassical elongated lantern has its original aged brass fittings including finial. Originally it held one candle but we have electrified the lantern with a three-light solid brass insert, patinated to match the original brass ring and finial. The height from the smoke bell to the bell jar can be adjusted. Ceiling cap, hanging hardware, and one foot of chain included.
