PLEASE WAIT FOR OUR EBAY INVOICE. For sale Antique 1890 Colonial Bell Jar Glass Hall Lantern Chandeliar Oil Lamp Green. This is a genuine 19th century bell jar crystal glass hanging lantern. This hand blown bell jar lantern is a beauty and was made for the colonial empire markets, it was imported to colonial India from Austria and Belgium. And was used in hallways, club houses, town hall, religious places of worship, wealthy homes etc. See pics above for examples of these lamps used at a bygone era. The 6th image above shows an opulent interior of a Maharaja's Palace in a 1890 postcard with Bell Jar Lanterns hanging see the foreground and background; the other images are of a 1888 albumen photo of a club house with a smaller sized bell jar lantern hanging near the doorway. And just above the albumen is a print from a c1841 British journal the "Graphic", with a collection of overhanging bell jar lamps and candle sconces in a public hall. Originally designed for whale/ parafin oil lamps or large candles placed on the inside surface of the bell jar. The lantern is a pair of thick hand blown crystal glass and crystal glass smoke cap. The smoke cap was to prevent blackening of the ceiling. This bell jar lantern is still in its original unmodified version and can easily be modified to an electrical version. But we suggest against it, as the lamp may loose its originality and uniqueness. Although this is for the buyer to decide. The drop height of the lamp with smoke cap is 21 inches, the bell jar's height alone is 13 inches and outer rim dia is 10 inches. Altogether lamp weighs 2 kgs. The fittings are all bronze/brass with their three peacock head hooks to hold the chains of the smoke cap, bottom of the bell jar dome comes with the flower knob finial. Priced to sell, these lamps sell for US$1500 and upwards in select stores. Terms of Sale FREE International Shipping: by DHL/EMS Courier.
