This is a Vintage Nippon Sento White Light Brass Oil Lantern. It was made in Japan by the Nippon Sento Co Ltd which was founded in 1936. The Company’s line of business includes manufacturing residential lighting fixtures. They are still producing lights to this day.
This oil lantern has a brass plaque with the model name, number, manufacture date, and a brass plaque that has the instructions for use. The glass on the outside is a thick Fresnel lens. It is in perfect condition with no chips or cracks. The oil reserve is accessed by unscrewing the nuts on each side of the base and lifting the outer housing.
The item would look beautiful placed on a fireplace mantle!
