Elegantly constructed of thin pieces of rosewood, this pair of ornate 19th-century lanterns would have originally been lit with candles to illuminate a very fine courtyard home in China's Shanxi province. Chinese lanterns 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 finding a fresh start. Each of the frosted glass panels are detachable and fit precisely within the delicate hexagonal frame like a puzzle. The lanterns can be hardwired by a certified electrician and professionally installed.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
