Material: Aged Copper and fire-retardant linen

The concertina lantern is made out of two copper bowls, where a candle can be placed.
The top bowl, which has an opening and a pierced pattern, allows light out and meanwhile keeps the draughts out.
The top has a cut-out lid with a finial, as well as a swivel handle for easy carrying and a hook that allows the lamp to be hung from the ceiling, on a light hook or from the branch of a tree.
The lower copper bowl forms a tray to hold the candle. When the two bowls are together with the linen folds, a candle can be placed in the holder of the bottom bowl.
Flame retardant white linen is suspended between the bowls.
When the linen is folded open, the cloth separates the two copper bowls. The linen surrounds the lit candle, protecting it from draughts and meanwhile allowing light to shine through the mesh.
The linen is only completely unfolded when the lamp is suspended by its hook or handle, as the weight of the lower copper bowl keeps it hanging steady.
Thin metal wires reinforce the linen so that it folds and unfolds easily, like a concetine or an accordion.
The bottom piece of the product is inscribed with a tughra - a calligraphic monogram, seal or signature of an Ottoman sultan.
