What Houzz contributors are saying:
Early-19th-century bell jar lanterns. By the early 19th century, the bell jar lantern could be seen in the foyers of many American colonial homes. The glass cap, known as the smoke bell, was designed to keep candle smoke from blackening the home's ceilings. Acid etched, opalescent and other creative finishes could be applied to the chimney and smoke bell glass. The shade carrier (the straps that go around the chimney glass) often had silver or bronze relief patterns with matching hook fittings.
