Ranging in size from 10 1/2" to 14 1/2" H. American, 19th century. Provenance: The estate of Charles K. Davis, Jr., Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from his father, Charles K. Davis of Fairfield, CT. Note: Charles Krum Davis Sr. (1889-1968) was chairman of the Remington Arms Company, and a passionate early collector of Americana. With the help of a few important dealers, primarily Israel Sack, Davis assembled what has been called one of the most important private collections of early Americana. His home was profiled in the Magazine Antiques, January and March, 1941. Much of Mr. Davis Sr.'s collection ultimately went to Winterthur and other museums. Condition: 1st lantern in overall good condition with some oxidation to tin, 2nd lantern with cracks to two of the glass inserts, light oxidation and wear. 3rd lantern with some oxidation and denting, one cracked glass insert.
