This elegant, delicately crafted lantern was made in Northern China over a century ago. The frame is made of the finest rosewood (Huali) and is inset with panes of frosted glass. Lanterns in China have a history that goes back over 1,800 years to the Han Dynasty: during the Lantern Festival (which falls on the 15th day of the first lunar month) people hang lanterns to symbolize peace and prosperity.
