Don't tell anyone but Järnkonst got in trouble with these lanterns. Well these (7416) and 7417 had wrong optics that burnt the bowls. The optics were patented because they were, -much better than rivals at the time-, but not in the long run. I guess they didn't factor in the damage from UV light that mercury vapor emits. That's probably why I haven't seen this 7416 lantern before your photos

@ arcblue. It looks more as a renovating of a building than a new construction. I read the word "sanering" and I guess it have the same meaning as in Dutch (removal for example asbestos)
