This striking, elongated lantern once illuminated a 19th-century home in China's Fujian province. Placed on the floor or set upon a table top, the tall lantern would have lit the room by candlelight diffused through a paper or silk lining. The lantern has a beautiful elmwood frame with hand-carved, decorative scrollwork and a richly aged dark lacquer finish. Traces of gilt pigment accentuate the carved detail, once brightly colored to a dazzling gold.

The original lining has been replaced with removable frosted glass panels. The lantern has been wired for a single light bulb (100 watt max.) and fitted with a chain and dark brown canopy for hardwiring to a ceiling junction box. Chain and wire can easily be adjusted upon request.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
