The Picture Lantern, Ashbourne (NC 291)For more information about purchasing this painting or a print please get in touch...
I saw this amazing picture lantern in an Ashbourne antique shop window and was intrigued by its history and the joy it must have brought to people before film and television became commonplace. The Georgian door fanlight of the former Black Moor’s Head Hotel in St John St. is reflected in the image (which was once part of the Green Man and ‘Black’s Head’ Hotel business).
