Item # 8346
A fine and very elegant French 19th century Louis XVI st. circular ormolu lantern. The lantern with bottom inverted berried finials has a pierced baluster designed rim encasing the original curved glass. The mottled vertical ormolu frames lead to rosettes with draping beaded garlands held by fanciful bows above tassels. The lantern is held by four 'S' scrolled supports decorated by acanthus leaves. The center top holds the central four electrified 'C' scrolled arms.
All original gilt throughout.
