Stunning vintage French gilt metal brass porch light lantern glass chandelier. This is a lovely piece in the classical style, with cast gilt metal roccoco style appliques on each of its 6 original bevelled glass panels. The lantern is in very good condition, it does have three replacement screws on the base that secure the glass panels, these could easily be changed if desired but do not effect the overall apearance of the light. There are a couple of tiny nibbles on the glass panels, probably caused by removing them to change blown bulbs over the decades, this is common on porch lanterns as the bulbs are not easy to change if you have large hands, so it is easier to simply remove a screw, and slip the glass out.Shown lit to illustrate that the light is working however the wiring is old and ideally should be replaced. The light should be tested and installed by a competent person, and earthed accordingly. The bulbs are not included, but are small screw in fittings. Dimensions the overall length is approx 56cm from rose to finial, the lantern is 38cm long x 18cm wide at the glazed panels.
