Antique Hand Blown Glass Melon Globe Lantern

This beautiful and rustic Lantern finds incredible use of an antique Melon Globe. The glass itself is known in French as ‘cloche’ and translates directly to ‘bell’ in English. It was hand blown in the 1860s and made originally to cover small plants, fruits, or vegetables during a freeze to create a miniature green house. The glass is quite thick to withstand the weather and elements and combines with the three lights, stem, and decorative chain to produce a fantastic lighting fixture.
