A large English hexagonal six-light copper lantern from the early 20th century, with glass panels. Born in England at the turn of the century, this very large lantern features an eye-catching hexagonal copper body, topped with an exquisite finial. The delicately scalloped décor leads the eye to the discreetly pierced diamond motifs that accentuate the lower section of the finial. The presence of the six glass panels is rhythmically marked by small decorative motifs on the upper rail. On the inside, a central shaft supports a sphere, from which six arms extend. The ensemble is punctuated with small rounded feet. The perfect contrast between the general linearity of the silhouette and the rounded accents, along with the striking color of the copper, circa 1900, is a perfect choice to illuminate any home, perhaps placed in a kitchen above an island. The lantern is wired for the US.
