A large antique Victorian wrought iron gas lantern with bullseye stained glass glazing panels (one hairline crack in one panel-see closeup). English, 19th century c1880. Complete and in excellent condition. Ready to go; this has been meticulously cleaned and rubbed up ( plus 2 full coat clear “museum” wax) retaining the original black paint which has never been recoated ( a very different formulation to a modern oil paint ). Rewired with a new patinated brass ES lampholder and new patinated brass tube to hold the lampholder firmly so a globe bulb is positioned centrally (not hung on a loose flex). N.B. The wooden ceiling pattress has a brass fitting/ spigot screwed on the underside (covered by a loose cast iron canopy) to which the top of the main stem fitting screws onto securely – i can explain if needs be but it’s all there, no parts needed! Dimensions in inches/cms; 58.25″/148cm total height/drop (19.75″/50cm tall from base to top of corner finials). 14″/38cm max width (not diagonal). 10.25″/26cm square-min. body width. 10.2kg.
