Vintage Italian Ship Lantern by G. Bottaro, Geneva
Design Plus Gallery presents a Vintage Italian Ship Lantern by G. Bottaro, Geneva. This antique Italian ship lantern is a beautiful and ornate piece that exudes a sense of history and craftsmanship. Made of durable copper that is designed to withstand the harsh conditions at sea. The lantern has a cylindrical shape with a domed top and a handle for easy portability. It is further equipped with a glass enclosure to protect the flame from wind and water, ensuring that it remains lit even during stormy weather. This glass, usually made of thick and durable material, can be clear or frosted for a more diffused lighting effect. Inside the lantern, there is a burner that holds a fuel source, such as oil or kerosene, which provides the light. This model has brackets + hooks for mounting the lantern to a wall or rigging on a ship. In worn antique condition.
