Based on a carriage light design, and Fourteenth Colony Lighting's #3632-1 is solid copper with seeded glass.

  1. Hi!

    You asked a question on Cote de Texas about the little green things in the white bowl on the cover of the House Beautiful January. I think they may be Osage oranges. They are bumpy, green, inedible oranges used strictly for decorative purposes.

  2. Oh such lovely lanterns!!! I have some in my storage building, this post reminded me of them. I need to pull them out and start useing them! Blessings~~~ Daphne

  3. Hi Nancy! How are you doing? Great post...lanterns are everywhere I look. Love gondola lanterns (example here http://www.faccents.com/item565.html). Vaughan's Gothic style is pretty neat..would probably turn it gray. Merci! Trish

  4. This is my first time visit here. From the tons of comments on your articles,I guess I am not only one having all the enjoyment right here!
