English Copper Street Lantern, Electrified and Signed Joseph Knight
This classic English copper street lantern features a lovely scalloped decoration at the top, elaborate repoussé "ears" on all four corners (newer screws added), and lovely small ball feet on the bottom corners. We have electrified it for the U.S. and added a custom-made antiqued brass cluster of 4 small "candlelight" sockets, each of which accepts up to a 75 watt bulb, as well as a matching hanging ring. With a darkened copper patina and the original oval label marked "Joseph Knight Lamp Co., Wolverhampton, England," we believe this lantern dates to around 1910. Smaller than the standard size, this one measures 29" hi x 12.15" square at its widest point and is sold with 6' of wire, chain, and a matching canopy, all in a matte espresso brown/black finish. Of course, we can lengthen or shorten the chain and wire if you desire.
England, CA 1910.
