Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RichardB Classic, traditional lantern
I stumbled on this outdoor lantern just by accident. It's styling quickly got my attention. It is an extremely attractively designed lantern that looks great on either side of my driveway and on my front porch. It seems to be very well made and with the seeded glass, it has that classy, traditional look that I was searching for. With the body of the lantern made of aluminum, it should withstand the elements fine. The bottom of the lantern is open so when it comes time to change bulbs you needn't disassemble anything and with the capacity for 3-60 watt (or any combination of other wattages) candelabra based lights you can fine tune your light to whatever brightness you desire. For example for maximum brightness, choose 3-60 watt bulbs, or for a somewhat less bright light, choose 3-25 watt bulbs, or anything in between.
The only problem that I encountered affected all three lights that I purchased, and that was that the wall plate and the lantern top were slightly misaligned and there is no adjustment to compensate for that. What I mean is that if the lantern top is installed so that it is perfectly level when viewing from the front, then the wall plate is slightly crooked. Or if you make sure that the wall plate is perfectly vertical, then the lantern sits slightly crooked. I opted to install it with the lantern perfectly level even though the wall plate sits at a slight angle. It isn't visible because the lantern hides it anyway, but it is something that needs to be addressed.
Other than that minor problem, I am extremely well pleased with the look and operation of the lantern.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TKH Easy to mount but read instructions first on how to get rid of the styrofoam transport protection in the lamp (you need to unscrew the cap - 2 screws). Works very well and feels sturdy enough. Presents beautifully. Good price-quality ratio (although on the inside the glas panels have some (visible) glue drops in the inside corners).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Abm87 great lights- especially the larger size
Great lights, we bought several of the larger lanterns and several of the smaller ones. Ended up taking back a couple of the smaller ones, as they look a little understated in places where you want the light to make a statement. Easy to install. Finish is a deep grey tone and somewhat rustic. Good quality

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnG Crooked mounting
So after we spent a lot of time deciding what fixtures (shopping several stores) we decided on these. I made custom mounting blocks for our cedar siding. I then realized when mounting these that If I were to mount the mounting base straight, the light would be crooked, If I mounted them so the light was straight the large mounting base was crooked on my custom cedar mounting block.... a little tough to bend... not sure what I'll do, I opened up the second light and its the same exact way. Not sure if I'm going to modify them or take them back...and start the shopping process over... the joys of home ownership.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fixerupper Nice look!
Coordinates well with the smaller version for the front of the house. These look great on either side of the garage door. A bit tricky to install but worth it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JT Great purchase!
Took no time to install. The two lights brighten up the front porch tremendously! We purchased the same fixture previously for our old house and now for the new house.

This light is very attractive for the look we wanted, and it is well manufactured overall. I think one thing that could be improved is the mounting hardware that fastens the light to the electrical box. It should be sturdier, so the fixture can be more tightly fastened to the wall.

Looks good on garage! Bulbs are a little difficult to put in but not too bad. Good size and easy install. Gives out good lighting
