0 reviews Write a review
A classic, medium sized hall lantern with a vintage style bell jar glass shade, our Bonham Lantern would make a wonderful addition to any room in your home. Inspired by Georgian lighting schemes, it features a traditional, hand blown bell jar glass shade set in a beeswaxed forged iron fitting, and comes supplied with 1m of chain that makes it a great choice for lighting an entrance hall.

Bell jars were originally hung in vestibules and entrance halls of Georgian homes where the jars stopped the candles being blown out when the door opened. In those days, candles were expensive so the jars where only lit when guests were expected but our Bonham has been designed with three bulb fittings to ensure there is plenty of light where it is needed!

All Jim Lawrence lights are made using traditional metal working techniques and are hand finished to the very highest standards here at our Suffolk workshop. The Bonham is made from solid, high quality steel that is traditionally beeswaxed for soft black look. It has a wonderful weighty quality that befits its handmade nature.

Please note; glass is a natural resource and as each piece is individually handmade, slight imperfections may occasionally occur such as ripples and small bubbles.

Finish


Beeswax: A traditional technique used since Tudor times. The metal is heated until it darkens and then dipped in natural beeswax which gives is a lovely soft black wrought iron effect which looks fabulous in any traditional or contemporary interior. As beeswax is a natural finish that reacts with the underlying metal during the forging process, it often has a subtle, slightly mottled patina with undertones of deep grey or ochre. It is not waterproof, so will need to be rewaxed occasionally. To find out more about our finishes and how best to maintain them, please read our Product Finish pages.

Where does it look good?


  • Beeswax is a versatile finish that works well with any colourway and natural building materials such as brick, stone, plaster or woodwork.
  • The Bonham looks fabulous hung in a front entrance, hallway or landing.
  • They also make an attractive alternative to traditional pendant lighting when suspended above a dining table or breakfast bar.

We also recommend…


  • Our Clear Candle LED bulb as the best lamp fitting for your light.
  • For a stylish, uniform look around your home, try matching your lights with our range of door or window furniture in the same finish, or something from our range of switches, sockets and curtain poles.
