French Revival Decorative Lantern, Set of 3

Lanterns are traditional and elegant. They create ambiance and add a brush of elegance to any setting. On a porch, lanterns give off just enough light to enjoy a glass of Coke and still see the stars. When they’re not lit, the glass of a lantern sparkles and reflects any light it catches.

A decorative lantern makes a stylish centerpiece. Combine lanterns of various sizes for additional charm and character. This set of three comes in stair step sizes to help you achieve a vintage vibe.

The combination of wood, metal, and glass makes the perfect companion to midsummer, starry nights. They fit in with your rustic home decor or your other antique collectibles. Using candles instead of lightbulbs creates an olde world feel that will help you escape reality, even if only for a short time.
