Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Termie Bought four, overall quite happy
I bought four of these lamps at my local HD store, and initially tried installing them myself. It turned out that the hardware included in the box just didn't work for my house, as the screws ended up being too long, or not the right size (my house is older, with a variety of mounts). I had an electrician come in to install these, and he had no trouble, as he had all the mounting hardware alternatives required.
Once in place, these lamps look very good. They are real metal and real glass - no plastic here. One of the four had slightly scratched glass, which probably would have warranted a return, but it's not that noticeable from afar.
The only other thing I was a little surprised at was how small these are. Unlike what you see in the stock marketing photo, a standard bulb sits really low in the lantern, and if you use LEDs, like I did, the fact that they typically cast light only downwards will make this all the more noticeable.
You may want to consider the "large" version of this lamp for another $10. I used it in one location and found it had a better overall appearance with a standard A19 bulb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clarity Great light - beautiful, classy, clean bright craftsman style light....but WHERE is the matching ceiling mounted or pendant version of this one?
I love this light and have it on the front of our house as well as in the back yard. I have one more light above the front door that needs to be replaced and I really want to match as a set (we bought a new Craftman style door with lovely clear glass). There was a ceiling mounted pendant hanging version of the Port Oxford Chestnut Lantern (online) but when I went to order it was out of stock and its not back (its now completely off the site as far as I can tell). Its now not on the website anymore and Im super bummed cause I dont have a matching set of lights for the front of the house. I may take them down and replace soon with a matching set it the inventory does not change soon... Help.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harbormaster Beautiful Lantern But Difficult To Install
This is an attractive lantern but a handful to install. It takes two people - one to hold the lantern while the other uses both hands to connect the bare wires using wire nuts. The mounting bolts that attach the lantern to its mounting bracket have slots for a screw driver but are impossible to reach with anything but a right-angled screw driver. Surely someone has devised an easier way to mount a lantern on a wall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CambriaBird Look great
...and will be easy to change lightbulbs when necessary. Used LED lightbulbs and they light up my front walkway much better than my old fixtures did.

What the heck are the sizes!!
The light is awesome. But The HD website
Is not up to par.
The light gets a 5 star. HD gets a 2 for making me frustrated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Truckeegal nice light
I bought these med size lights for my house. They are nice lights, tan glass so the bulb is not "seen", just the light. Easy install if your electrician put in the electrical box correctly!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Myko75 Classic look - love it!
I have a hard time finding an exterior light that I like and this is the first one where I thought "yes! this is it!!" Easy to install and looks great. Very happy!! Going to purchase 3 smaller ones for the backside of the house.
