This listing is for a beautiful and unique Mexican Folk Art Terracotta Lantern. Hand painted, with perforated with marbles in some of the perforated holes,, this reminds me of the Atlantic mold Christmas trees.
I've googled extensively and I can't find another like this. The handpainted little flowers are so delicate and festive. This lantern has two parts; the top and a base it sits in.The base I believe is made to hold a candle for this lantern but there is also a little hole in the side that could be wired for a night light type bulb. The hole is small, too small to fit a plug through so you would have to put a wire through and then add the plug or other end once inside. I placed a night light bulb into the lantern w/o the base to take these photos. 15.5" tall while sitting on base, approx 8" wide at its belly. Condition: very nice , the lantern portion is excellent, the base has some chips under its edge and on its lip which you don't see when the lantern is in place. This lantern is not marked Mexico, but I believe this was made in Mexico.
