I would like to inquire about two "Chinese" lanterns. The seller claims that they are old, but no further information is provided. I would appreciate your assistance in determining whether these lanterns are contemporary reproductions or genuine antique pieces before deciding whether to purchase them.
Is there any literature about chinese lanterns?
Thanks a lot!

Not my area but these look later 20th Century rather than 'old'.

I spent four years in Taiwan in the late 1970s and again in the late 80s, Markets there were full of similar lanterns.
