Lantern of eclectic style mixing a classic rococo-style cage with a very typical Napoleon III style tray carrying a flame. The set is adorned with golden bronze dragons acting as arms of light and the 4 arms of light treated like neogothic gargoyles terminated by four frosted glass flames. The whole was redoured and cleaned in our workshops and the damaged glassware was replaced.

It sought to revive medieval Gothic architecture, in contrast to the neoclassical styles prevalent at the time. Gothic Revival draws features from the original Gothic style, including decorative patterns, finials, lancet windows, and hood moulds. By the mid-19th century, it was established as the preeminent architectural style in the Western world.

L’ensemble est orné de dragons en bronze doré faisant office de bras de lumière et les 4 bras de lumière traités comme des gargouilles néogothiques terminées par quatre flammes en verre dépoli. L’ensemble a été redoré et nettoyé dans nos ateliers et la verrerie endommagée a été remplacée.
