Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.
It's possible that this could be Qing dynasty, but if so it's definitely towards the later end (1912).
Can you please describe what this looked like before the damage?
And is this porcelain? Hanging palace lanterns might be enamel over copper, or another light material, but not porcelain--perhaps this was something else entirely. I'm trying to get an idea of the overall look.
I'm quite familiar with Chinese porcelain standing lamps/lanterns, and standing lantern covers, but I've never seen a porcelain hanging lantern. I've checked any number of databases, and I'm coming up with nothing. I'm going to opt out and let another appraiser try.
Hello, my name is Tanya I am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. I would need to see the pieces you have of the overall broken lantern and clear close ups of the medallions if possible so I may tell you the type of lantern you have and the age with certainty. From there I can tell you the value of the piece. Do you have a pair of these or just the one? They were in sets when produced. (2-6-9- or 12) If you have more then one and the restoration is 3500.00 for all yes it is well worth restoring them. If you have one only I need to review the pieces to determine if you have an exceptional lantern to restore for that pricing. Thank you I look forward to helping you.
Hi Thank you for the photos and measurements. This is a beautiful lantern done 1890-1910 and has a value of $2400.00 if it had not been broken. Being broken, as is the value is 350.00 and someone would buy the pieces to re-purpose and sell as pendents, framed in 3D boxes etc to showcase the porcelain medallions, the lattice porcelain, The bronze work would sell for $45.00 each. To pay and have it restored would be wonderful also but it would be more for you to keep and enjoy then to resell as you would not be able to get your investment back. If you took the ideas above you would be able to get some value back from selling as is or making the framed art and jewelry yourself.
