Transition Hanging Lantern
This is a small beauty. This brass hanging lantern most likely hails from the 1920's. It was always intended as an electric light but was designed to look like a traditional kerosene lantern. I have seen similar in a catalogue of vintage lighting.
I love the harps - they have a wonderful Egyptian influence which is why I believe they date to the 20's.
I believe the metal is lacquered brass. The lacquering is no longer on the metal - my cleaning removed the last. It is "thin" and only about 6" wide but hangs 37" from ceiling attachment to the bottom. The lamp was re-wired by Lone Pine Lighting of Dayton, Va
