You can light up any haunted house with this spooky old lantern. The lantern is made of light-weight metal that is brushed with black paint to give it an aged and tarnished look. In the center, a small light bulb is encased in a glass globe, which lights up with the press of a switch on the bottom of the lantern. The lantern requires a 3 AA batteries (not included) to operate, which are also housed in the bottom. The top of the piece features a metal hoop, which allows you to hang it up anywhere. The lantern also features metal handle for carrying it around. It adds a creepy mood to any Halloween theme! - Lantern - *Batteries not included*

First of all, it's horribly painted. This actually makes me happy because I've developed a painting method over time that actually looks like real metal and the terrible texturing is going to be a great surface for my paint to cling to. If you plan on repainting this, go for it but if you're looking for something realistic, I wouldn't. Also it smells funny for some reason? I didn't go sniffing it or anything, but this waft of paint-and-tin smell came rising out of the box when I opened it.
Second, before you get upset about it not working like I did (new batteries and everything and it still wouldn't light) take it apart and make sure the bulb is actually screwed in. I never would have known this if the wire didn't come flying out when I unscrewed the bottom of it. Again, I don't blame the seller. There's a lot of jostling that goes on during shipment and really, I'm just grateful that the glass part isn't broken, though it does keep coming out of place. This is easily fixed too with a quick dab of hot glue.
I will say that this is not a bad lantern. It gives me a LOT to work with and, as someone who loves sprucing-up and customizing her belongings, it's right up my alley. It's not too bright, which is perfect. Nice and ambient. I will say that you get what you pay for, but if you give this little lantern a chance, a proper coat of paint and some tinkering, it's sure to live up to being a pretty awesome prop.
I would have given this 5 stars for being an excellent spooky cemetery lantern, but it's a little too flimsy for my liking. Like, if you were to drop it onto a hard floor, it would probably snap and have to be glued back together. But all I'm doing is setting it on the ground next to a foam tombstone, so I'm not too worried about that.
I will use this during Halloween however for my year-round home lantern, I prefer the Mark Feldstein & Associates LNT8 Portable LED Lantern with Frosted-Glass Shade.
The "WeatherRite 5572 15 LED Number-5572 Outdoor Traditional Look Lantern with efficient LED lighting" lantern uses a set of LEDs rather than an incandescent, which can be a negative to some. But that other lantern looks of solid copper, is made of high grade aluminum and you're able to adjust the brightness. AND it costs a few dollars less than this horrible lantern.
This lantern is made of extremely cheap plastic, and costs MORE than the solid metal WeatherRite. This feels like its going to break just picking it up. And this odd paint splatter, sick looking grey motif is just sad. It looks nothing like the picture on this page. Don't buy this cheap lantern, not even as a prop or decoration.
I'm going to post pictures comparing the two.
I like that the globe is glass, and the golden light the little bulb puts out is very nice. It looks old, authentic if you don't look too closely.
What I don't like is that the batteries wear out very quickly, and the cover on the battery case looks like you are supposed to be able to remove it, but actually need a small phillips screw driver to get it off. And since the batteries need changing after about 8 hours of use it's not very practical.
For people who are buying it for Halloween parties or costumes, it's great! But for a light every evening in our outdoor kitchen, it's not practical.
