Hexagonal Lantern

A customer found a lantern in their basement that had not been unused for many years, but it needed a lot of work. A new 3-way central pendant wired with lamp holders was made, as the original had been lost, as well as manufacturing four missing leaf scrolls and one turned finial from the base. Any unbroken panes of glass were removed so that we could chemically clean the metalwork to remove all old paint, dirt and putty. Then apply two coats of red oxide paint inside and gild exterior of lantern in pure gold leaf. Replacement flat and curved glass was sourced and fitted and original glass cleaned.
