SL023E Globe Lantern, Electric
Believe us or not, but it took over ten years for the right old globe lantern to show up at auction. That’s poring over dozens of maritime auction books. Christie’s, Sotheby’s, Bonhams. We found it in London, Kensington, early 2005. It was hand made around the turn of the century, 1900s. Probably destined for a windjammer, for sailors wanted quality. Hand shaped brass, in the visual center a heavy wire cage protecting hand blown glass. Never seen such a solid, heavy, well-made globe lantern before. Our replica does not compromise. You be the judge…. inspect. Lift and appreciate solid weight. Consider its many applications. No, we don’t want a trophy. True reward is a recognition of quality offered.
