French Maritime Lantern from Paris.
Original plaque is still intact and reads:
Ouvrard Villars – Societe’ Anonyme
65 Rue du Docteur Bauer – St Ouen, Seine
Original black paint layers reveal bits of the metal surface. Interior surface (for bulb if electrified) has remnants of original cream paint but can be scraped down to match the zinc color that has revealed itself over time.
Great industrial find. 20.75″ t x 10″ w x 6.75″ d
