An incredibly rare, unusual and early diminutive North European repoussé brass candle lantern. c.1750.
Featuring a heavy glass bull-eye paned hinged door, enclosing a internal single candle holder.
The lantern is topped with a scalloped pediment with a central chimney. Its’ cylindrical body is decorated with repoussé scrolls and scallop shells. Notably, the folding strap handle is stamped with a tiny key emblem.
When lit, the bull-eye glass magnifies the small point of light from within.
