This item is a rare survivor and of museum quality due to its form, untouched original condition and motifs attributed to the Knight Templar. Original paint still present, candle holding still firmly in place internally. This item would likely have been used in processions or ceremonies of sorts. Showcasing intricate pattern motifs through pierced metal, 4 Knight Templar motifs at the base of this example which make it exceedingly rare and highly collectable.

There are sections of the metal that have become loss in areas however this does not affect the stability of the lantern.
