A Very Rare Korean Iron Portable Hand-Carrying Lantern (조족등)-19th C:

Korea, Joseon dynasty, 19th century.

***This type of iron portable lantern (조족등) is extremely rare and

it's never been published in museums, private collections or in sale houses as my best knowledge.

Made with iron in the shape of lotus hexagonal lower body, and cylindrical iron hand carrying bar

with a folding curtain shape floral decoration. Inside, the candle is supported by a revolving clamp

that allows the candle to remain in up-right, irrespective of the direction the lantern swings.

It’s in fair condition with its aged rust and patina (some body panel loosened but easily can fix it),

it measures 14” h x 9” d. (35cm x 23cm) respectably.
