Venetian candle lantern

Venice is not just any old, fabled city. Its history goes back over a thousand years. Venetian fleets sailed out and traded with Damascus, Cyprus, Constantinople. Mansions back home were decorated in a multitude of styles brought back by merchants like Marco Polo. A pair of our little Venetian lanterns at one time lighted the gate and courtyard of a mansion on the Grand Canal. The style is 16th C. Ottoman, but the owner's crest molded on its cage-door shows it was designed and made in Venice. Surely it was inspired by the art and architecture encountered in far away exotic lands. Swinging from a matching bracket our Venice lantern will enthrall, enthuse...and impress. A pair to light a doorway, an entrance... a line of five, six to light a hallway or vaulted passage...
