Catalogue Note

The form of this lantern relates very closely to an example at Hardwick Hall, Derbyshire and illustrated in R. Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture, Rev. Ed., 1990, p. 282, fig.1. It is noted here that the lantern at Hardwick was included in an inventory of 1601 attached to the will of Bess of Hardwick and described as; 'a great glass Lanthorn in the half pace at the stair head'.
