A very rare Christmas lantern, made in Germany in approximately the 1920s. It is made of die-cut card backed with coloured paper, so it resembles leaded and stained glass. The side panels feature Christmas scenes of Santa Claus and deer. It can be displayed with a tea light inside. Due to the ephemeral nature of this type of decoration, few survive today.
