West Country tole candle lamp, circular with domed top and carrying handle over three glazed panels, one as a door to access the candle holder, the pierced-work tole to allow ventilation. Bears maker's label, Thompson Bros. Ltd. Bridgewater (Somerset). The lantern came from the makers as unused and unsold thus still in as-made condition, which is quite extraordinary.

English, circa 1850 - 1880
