Rare Miniature Lantern. With Child’s Size
The miniature lantern, 19th century, pierced brass, just 3 ¾ inches tall, emulating full size pierced tin lanterns. The hinged door opens to a candle cup. Although tiny, the lantern was really used as evidenced by dark-soot patina inside under the top. Perfect condition with old polish surface, and some verdigris……The tiny wick trimmers, also in brass, 18th century. Would take a child’s hands to open and close. Just 3 3/8 inches long.
