Eco Friendly Lamps and Lighting Gifts
The description says 5 inches, and they each are about 5 inches square, but when I got them, they seem larger, and they are very durable. The metal framing material will hold up beautifully if left on porch or patio, and even if over time the paint wears and rust begins, spray painting them with black Krylon (or another color) would be a snap. The glass leaves catch the candlelight and have a great effect, and these lanterns can handle larger candles than tea-candle canisters. The candle base or platform is 3-1/8 inches in diameter, but you wouldn't want to put a candle that the top is too far above the leaf tips from the platform (2? in.) or the light won't play on the leaves as much. A candle that's 3" diameter by 3? tall would be about the largest to use. With very little care, these will last decades.
It i very distinctive, unlike the repeats one sees in store chains, like Pier One, etc. And it works!
