Newton School copper and horn lantern
A copper candle lantern with wooden handle and horn screens made by the Newton School of Metal Work, circa 1910.
I was delighted to find this lantern in such original condition. It appears in an image of the Newton School exhibition stand at the Home Arts and Industries Exhibition. The image was taken at the Royal Albert Hall and is believed to date to 1913.
Dimensions: 7 1/4″ at widest point and 12″ tall
Condition: The horn screens have split in a number of places as they have dried out but they are intact. There are some darker spots to the patina and a slight crease on one side of the top plate
