There is something to be said about soft candle light that brightens up a room. It is soft, soothing and very welcoming. So, when I brought in one of our newest items a replica of a Medieval Lantern I knew I was in trouble because it was love at first sight.
This replica is from Southern Bohemian Region in the Czech Republic near the city of Tabor during the 14th century, which was founded by the Hussites. Holding this lantern, I had images of Ancient Fortifications people moving about their day, feasting in the main hall where these lanterns may have graced the table of the local Chieftain. I wanted to go back in time to visit this area, but alas my lantern isn’t a Genies lantern that would grant me that wish.
What I can tell you is that the lantern very sturdy and made from Ceramic, and I really love the forged color and it fits well in a rustic or modern setting. We usually light our candles in the evening and the candle light fills the room with a soft warm glow through the opening and holes at the top.
The candle holder is perfect for votives or tealights and is 16cm in height, with an sturdy handle for carrying.
So, if you are finding you want to add an extra medieval touch to your feasting table or home this would be perfect!
