This fine American gilt brass lantern dates from the mid-19th century. Manufactured by Henry Northey Hooper & Co. Hooper (1799 – 1865) was a preeminent manufacturer and merchant of decorative lighting, Civil War artillery, and bells and chimes. His firm he cast the first life-size bronze statue in the United States. The lantern is modelled in the rococo taste, finely cast and chased by hand. Lanterns by Northey Hooper rarely come on the market, and this is a particularly nice example.
The gilding tarnished and worn in areas consistent with exposure to the elements. The chain suspensions and corona later associated. Currently without electric light fitment, or its original light source.
