Famille Rose Reticulated Chinese Lantern Fitted For Electricity
Presented for sale is a stunning 2-part late 19th to early 20th century Famille Rose reticulated Chinese lantern fitted as a lamp. The lantern features a hexagonal base supporting an elongated ovoid form lantern with a crenellated rim. The lantern has six reticulated panels with circular medallions mid center depicting botanicals. The panels are bordered in floral famille-rose enamels.
The lantern has been fitted for electricity and has been newly re-wired, the old silk-wrapped cord (shown in our pictures) being hazardous for use. The lantern is in excellent condition, a marvel to behold with all the cut-out design and intricately painted flora.
Size: 16" Height.
