This cheery red and brass finish lantern would be so cute as part of your decorating. It stands 9 ¼” tall to the top of the bail handle and is 4” wide. It does burn, but the receptacle for holding the fuel is small, and probably wouldn’t last too long, but the glass sides were covered in soot when we found it; so we know it does burn. It is made of red enameled metal and a brass-finished metal. There are some dings and wear on the finish, but that just adds to its charm. The glass sides are in excellent condition with not chips or cracks. It is marked made in Hong Kong, which certainly attests to its vintage age, since Hong Kong became part of China in 1997. It’s a nice size for creating a decorating vignette.
This would be a charming addition to your collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
