Cargo Hold Lantern Electric Lamp Hanging Ceiling Lamp Nautical Lighting with Brass Ceiling Bracket
Somehow French tool and instrument makers know how to add a little molding here, a nick or twist there. Here it results in a product of unsurpassed elegance and appeal. Our French lantern was used during expeditions of the French Colonial Army while quartered in Tahiti, Saigon, Casablanca, Martinique. The reason that only a few original brass utilitarian colonial objects can be found these days is that most were melted down during WWII. The French lantern creates a statement. It’s just the right size and in short; it has charisma!
Extremely heavy and solid construction. Industrial look appeals to contemporary as well as classic interiors. 360 degree radius light. Due to the weight of its hand blown glass and all brass construction, the lantern needs to hang from stainless steel wire attached to its solid cast brass ceiling bracket. The length of the dark brown anodized wire can be adjusted with included bolt-clamps.
