Description / Expertise:

This charming lantern decorated with typical Dutch estuary scenes is a rare survival. Although they must have been made in large quantities as evidenced in many Dutch Old Masters their medium makes them very vulnerable. The painting on this lantern is exceptionally fine and typical of the period. The use of polychrome lifts the decoration. This lantern is very atmospheric conjuring up images of cosy interiors.
