Description

Cast in iron in France, circa 1900, this antique lantern holder features a four-armed support for a lantern. The support faces up, allowing a lantern to be attached in front of and above the element, providing ample light. Comprised of a series of volutes and rinceaux, the lower body also is adorned with a curled acanthus leaf. The upper body is affixed to a horizontal rod (which extends from the lantern support) by brackets. A pair of attachment points are still intact at the rear of the architectural, which would be used for installing as a functional lantern holder. The lantern support could also be used to hold a large potted plant or rotated so that the arms face down, allowing it to be rigged for a hanging plant.

Lantern holders of similar scale and design can still be seen in villages and cities throughout France.

CONDITION: Good antique condition, with light traces of oxidation, commensurate to age and outdoor installation. The iron has been cleaned, pigmented, and waxed, allowing the motifs to be seen more clearly.
