1930's Early Showa

Very Good, there is a burn on one of the plates on one lantern, see photos, there is some patina on the gold colour. Mahogany wooden stands have light scratches.
These are a spectacular pair of large, copper temple lanterns, with lactice work depicting phoenix and clouds. The inner has perspex plates and there is a ring on top used for hanging. They come with mahogany turned bases (these are relatively new) but could be sold without. Wonderful interior design statement!
