These are lovely little votives, carved in classic shapes evoking antiquity. The quality of the alabaster isn't pristine, however, they're well finished and look ever so romantic, warming the candlelight that passes through.
I was looking for tall thin lanterns for my mantle. My mantle shelf is only 7.5 in wide. I quickly learned that most lanterns increase their base size as the height increases and I REALLY wanted at least 30 inches tall. These are perfect. The actual base is about 7.5 inches and they increase to about 8.5 in. They are shiny chrome and you can put the rope loop up or let it drape down. They can hold a pillar candle or you can fill them with objects each season. I put a battery pillar candle inside on a candlestick and covered the candlestick with fall leaves/small pumpkins/ pine cones. The candle comes on at dusk and it looks beautiful. I still look at lanterns when I'm shopping and haven't seen tall thin ones like these. Pottery Barn had very similar ones but not as tall - and for a lot more money.
