Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
It's much larger than I had thought. It's also pretty heavy. A bird could probably live in it comfortably. It says in the discription that there is an option of a light bulb, which is completely untrue. The bottom part of this "light" is not even flat, therefore if I did put a candle in it, the wax will drip all over the place. It's an interesting looking piece, just not very well made. Pretty disappointing for my first overstock order.
This lantern comes with a card in the box that says it has a delicate rusty patina that was applied painstakingly by skilled artisans in Morocco. This lantern was spray painted with reddish brown spray paint. I could have done as well out in the wood shop behind my house.
I fixed the patina by burning the paint off with a low heat torch. Now the patina is acceptable.
The lantern is not symetrical and the card goes on to explain that slight imperfections indicate the handcrafted nature of the product. One would still be aware that it was handcrafted even if someone did at least TRY to make it symetrical.
It is a good size and compared with the other lanterns available elsewhere, the price is good but it is not ready to use when one gets it because the spray paint finish is so poor that I can't imagine someone would just hang it and go as is.
I read the reviews before purchasing and figured out that the people who didn't like it, didn't GET that it was not a mass produced cookie cutter type item. I couldn't be more delighted with the look and craftsmanship. I have it hanging in a corner of my guest bath and illuminated by a multi-wick candle. The shadowing effect on the four walls when someone walks in is fantastic! These are handmade, one of a kind lanterns. They are a bit "rough", but it only adds to the magic. This lantern is pure art.....
I was thrilled to find this product available and for the price listed, too good to be true! Yet, to my dismay, the lantern was poorly made, not "painstakingly handcrafted". The slopped on paint was what pushed me over the edge. If this is what they are offering then $20 would've been too much to pay.
Good looking piece for a corner in my living room. Provides pretty light for entertaining. Craftsmanship isn't great (door can be hard to close), but i rarely open it. We got self timed flameless candles to fill it. Price is good - i wish they came in a variety or sizes.
This is exactly what I was looking for! My family and I were in Morocco a number of years ago and I fell in love with these lamps! I've been looking for them on and off for a few years and could not find ones that were the right size. These are perfect! They look amazing on our deck and give it a wonderful exotic touch. I bought flameless electric candles and they cast amazing shadows through the lanterns! Perfect!
The photograph on the website shows the amazing lighting effects (shadows) that this lantern casts. It is, however, more difficult to see the object itself, which I am happy to inform you, is a gorgeous accent piece. It is obviously lovingly made by hand, so if you prefer a machined look, this piece is not for you; but if you love handicraft, I highly recommend this piece. It would work inside or outside.
Beautiful. It is hand made so its not perfect but that lends to its charm.
I will say that the area they included to hold the candle is rediculous and
you will have to jerry-rig something to hold the candles. It takes a lot of light inside
to get the pattern to show on the walls (which was my goal).
I may add an electric light inside at some point. I also like that it can be hung or sat on a table.
Its large and makes a statement!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? spot on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very nice
How accurate was the sizing? Its bigger than I expected
