Elegantly constructed of thin pieces of rosewood, this ornate 19th-century lantern would have originally been lit with candles to illuminate a very fine courtyard home in China's Anhui province. Chinese lanterns have a history that goes back over 1,800 years to the Han Dynasty. During the Lantern Festival (which falls on the 15th day of the first lunar month), people hang lanterns to symbolize finding a fresh start. Each of the frosted glass panels on this elegant lantern are detachable and fit precisely within the hexagonal frame like a puzzle. Delicately carved round medallions within the outer frame resemble Chinese eternal coins, conveying a blessing of prosperity and success.

The lantern can be hardwired by a certified electrician and professionally installed.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
