Description

An exceptionally rare, probably unique and bespoke hexagonal gothic lantern and bracket of large dimensions. The lantern frame with ecclesiastic architectural elements of gothic arches and cluster column corners. The arches surmounted with the cross. The whole gathered with six gothic upswept suspensions to a crown surmount. The lantern glass panels of pale ground colour, frosted in density and rippled in the surface plane. All decorated and hand painted individually with vine motifs. The suspension bracket in the form of a long sinuous and very realistic vine of very bold proportions. One glass panel cracked, with crude repair. Would repair better to a comfortably acceptable condition. With hinged access door and probably originally gas lit. Now would easily wire for electricity. The bracket arrangement suggests a possible over door or gateway illumination??
Now attained very pleasing age acquired Verdigris patination. The workmanship and overall composition is of exceptional master craftsmanship in metal working and glass making.
