To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Beautiful little lantern! Bought as a gift and am positive they will like it. The amber glass is good quality but the edges were quite sharp so could do with some sanding. There was also no info about the inside of the lamp at the bottom and how a candle or tea light might be held. When arrived it appears there is nothing to hold the candle in place inside, it is just a flat interior panel.
This is a most attractive olde worlde lantern which will add a touch of charm to Christmas time and other such festivities. The wrought iron effect and tinted glass are most appealing. It would also look great during Guy Fawkes Nights accompanying the evocative smell of gunpowder and ale! The downside is that these lanterns feel cheaply made. The metal is thin, and the clips fixing the pieces of glass look minimalistic. I was also disappointed to notice that the product was made in China (what isn't these days?). I would have been much happier had this been UK-made, but the words 'Made in England' are virtually extinct from the shops these days which is very sad as these were a byword for high quality forged from our illustrious Victorian period. I hope I am wrong but I can't see this product lasting many years in service.
Really pleased with 🏮. Looks so much better than in the picture. The glass is beautiful and appears very authentic, the metal work appears better quality than others i have purchased. In fact I like it that much I don't know if I will put in the garden or keep in the house, I suppose I could just buy another.
Well, I guess the lantern IS pretty...but the blue colour is nothing like the vibrant cobalt blue shown in the photographs. The blue in my lantern was nearer to a navy. I tried a pillar candle, and a tea light with the lantern, but didn’t like any of them. Neither light source lit up the glass very well & didn’t achieve the results I was looking for. So, I ended up putting a short string of battery operated multicoloured fairy lights...which look amazing.
Bought 2 of the blue glass lanterns for my decking area in the garden, they were a bit smaller than expected BUT I love them. They arrived intact and well wrapped, due to some of the reviews I decided to play safe with candles and realised that the smallest jar candle from Yankee Candles fits in the lanterns. We tested them out last night, the candles were lit for 5 hours, the lantern glass was absolutely fine, gave of a beautiful glow with a lovely fragrance to boot!
Great and pretty item, I’ve bought a few and they are all perfect. My only issue is the tabletop ones fit normal candles and this just fits standard tea lights. Which means if it’s hung above head height you don’t get a lot of illumination below. Great item could just use a bigger plate/bowl for a candle to sit in.
I made this purchase to replace a lantern my cat had knocked over that looks exactly the same but this one was supposed to be bigger and since it cost more I opted for this one. Its even smaller than my original and the color isn't what I thought it would be.
