Rare silk lantern with brass metal flower decoration
A one of a kind hanging lamp or lantern with a very unique design from the 1950's or before. The basic design seems to have Oriental/Asian influence, but the most important aspect of this lamp are the four different types of 3D flowers and leaves made from brass on each of the 4 rectangular faces. The semitransparent faces are actually made from silk. A candle type long bulb is used in it. It came with a very long chain for hanging. The height of the wood frame (black) is about 20" and the square cross section is 9"x9".
