- In 1887, England declared an imperial holiday to commemorate Queen Victoria’s 50th year on the throne—her golden jubilee. Public celebrations occurred across the empire. Photographs from India show a distinctive array of glass lanterns illuminating the occasion, representing the hybrid of Anglo and Indian design sensibilities. Hampton reproduces these historic, mouth-blown glass lanterns. While the oversized bell jar originally held a reservoir of whale oil, we suspend a candelabra array to provide warm light without the mess. The upper shade deflected the oil’s thick smoke to prevent it from staining the ceiling. Hampton comes in four metal finishes and three glass options, allowing you to customize the look to your own décor.
