  • CA CVM CVM_984.41.12
  • Pièce

A folding Chinese lantern from the Pekin Restaurant (proprietor Sue Lem Bing). It consists of two round wooden blocks of unequal size, connected by two, long parallel, thin, metal rods.

There are seven, thinner, metal bent rods which also run between the blocks and are placed around the circumference of the blocks. The lantern covering is attached to these bent rods. The rods rotate to allow the lantern to unfold. When unfolded, it forms a hexagon-shaped inverted bell. The blocks are red coloured; the lower block has a gold band around the middle.
