Hi all. I have two little 1/12 scale sterling lanterns. They were purchased at some point between 1982-1983, and I believe were part of a line of miniatures commissioned by the Metropolitan Museum in the late 70’s early ‘80’s that were based on American(?) pieces, probably for sale in the museum shop.
