Metal was sharp - not the best qualityRead More
something very very special about this item. Great size very earthy.Read More
The lamp was a lot thinner and lighter than I expected. It looks great though. I was just expecting something of a higher quality for the price.Read More
I purchased it a few years ago for my pool lanai. Everyone loved it when it was lit. When my daughter came home from collage she fell in love with it and had to have it. I miss it! I will probably buy a new one soon. It really was/is pretty against a wall when lit.Read More
This item did not meet my expectations considering the reviews. It is rather sloppy in the way it was put together and one of the legs is over a half inch shorter than the others. In the daylight, it is quite unattractive, however, in the dark with a few candles inside, it is quite nice. There are similar products for a much better price.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.....Read More
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.Read More
I don't understand why people thought this lantern was junk. I'm absolutely thrilled with the quality! It's a handmade piece from the middle east, made from reclaimed metal. Perfect it's not, but these things aren't meant to be. I had no problem wiring it -- it came with a round insert for the socket and a hole in the bottom for wire. The hinges and clasp on the door are sturdy. It's rustic, heavy, well made and stunning when lit. Even with tiny tealights, the enchanting shadow patterns still reach the ceiling from the end table I have it on. The versatility is wonderful. I can use it as an electric lamp, or as a candle lantern. I couldn't be happier with it!Read More
