I decided to swap out my old back porch light with the Hampton Bay Hawthorne Light. This light is larger and much nicer than the original light that came with my home. Installation was quick, under 10 minutes with removal of my old light. Directions are clear and although there is some assembly like putting the glass panels in place, the project was very easy. The finish is referred to as Bronze but it is really almost black with a few bronze tones. I definitely recommend this product and I encourage you to look at my images to get an idea of the installed look.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wxray Good looking with good mounting plate
This was the perfect outdoor light to replace my aging bright brass lamp. The downcast light opening allows for plenty of light to get out. The frosted glass effectively hides the "coils" of a CFL bulb that I have installed. This is an important savings since the light runs all night, so it would have been a shame if a fancy bulb type light was required.
Here's what I liked about installation:
- The mounting plate had many options for support to the box. My 30 year old electrical boxes don't always play nice with the more recent standard box sizes. No problem here since the plate has options (see picture)
- Once you get the installation plate up, then it is easy to connect the wires and attach to the plate. The mounting to the plate is straight forward.
Quality looks pretty good. My fixture has more dark bronze than gray. It is hard to capture the look in pictures. I noticed that both my picture and the professional official picture appear darker than what the eye sees. My only con was that some internal stickers (wattage warnings, for example) peeled off. You can't see these stickers so it doesn't matter too much.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aroyals Beautiful and easy install
First off I was impressed with the good packaging, the glass panels were individually wrapped and secured to prevent them breaking during shipping. The panels were very simple to install (just bent four little clips to hold each one in place) and it only took about ten minutes to take off the old light and wire up this one. The glass is a beautiful bubble glass that looks hand made, and the bronze finish is beautiful as well. We put our first one by our front door, and we are going to put two more on the sides of the garage. Very happy with this outdoor lamp.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcknzy Beutiful outdoor light.
This outdoor light was well protected and came undamaged.
Directions were simple and to the point,installation was easy and took about 20 minutes.
This light really looks good and with the blown glass look in the panes makes it look like a 19th century gas light.
The quality and workmanship in this light is excellent and looks great on the back porch lighting the deck.
Highly recommend for a classic lighting look for your home or garage.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bakingmom Great Lantern
This lantern is perfect for the entrance to my yard. It is attatched to the side of my garage just above the walkway. It takes a 60 watt bulb, which was included, and it is enough to illuminate the path back to the house and the side of the yard. It is the pefect size for that area. The frosted glass creates a warm and cozy glow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kkbb Great light for price
A pretty outdoor fixture for a traditional home. We un-boxed this light and were pleasantly surprised at its weight and quality - especially for the price. It was so easy to install on the existing plate. The black metal is up-to-date and adds to that Traditional "Cape Cod" look.
