beautiful design with intricate scrollwork
on December 13, 2010
Beautiful design! These are somewhat smaller than some candle lanterns, which makes them more suitable for tabletop decoration (although they are still large enough to hang outside if that is your purpose). Four tea lights fit comfortably inside, so you can have the light of four candles at once, which makes them useful in low light as well as decorative. The scroll work sides are not lined with glass, so real candles would blow out in windy conditions, but the metal design makes them much more attractive than the glass sided lanterns, although the metal scrollwork does block some of the light compared to glass-sided. If I were getting only one moroccan candle lantern, this would be it. For the holidays, I am using battery operated tea lights with shifting colors, which are lovely against the white, but I will also use them on the patio when the weather turns warm. I got them for the holidays, but I like them so well, I will find some way to use them year round.
