It gets wired directly into the box. Original contruction of Brass but has been painted over with a thick weather resistant paint at some point in time. The insides socket and wiring have all been replaced. This obviously was a lantern that at one time that was converted. The glass globe and the body are original, we are uncertain if the chain is original.
The lantern fixture measures 12 1/2" from the hanging loop at the top to the bottom of the glass. It measures 7" across the widest part of the body. There is oxidation to the metal but no rot. The chain measures 12" and the ceiling cap is also included. We date this piece to c1910-15. This would make an excellent porch or entry way light for your Mission style or Arts and Crafts style home.
