This CCL2515 6” Glass Onion Wall Lantern Caged is pictured here in Antique Brass with clear glass. It accommodates a medium base bulb and is lit from the top. The Antique Brass is not lacquered so will darken and weather to a beautiful natural patina!

IMPORTANT NOTE: All Onion Lanterns come apart with thumb screws for ease in cleaning and replacement of light bulb.

The origins of the Onion lanterns date back to the whaling ships and fishing vessels of years gone by. The name “onion lantern” came about because of the shape of the glass.

The onion glass is a hand-blown globe, and casts a lot of light all around! Very popular in seaside areas…especially on Cape Cod! Folks in different parts of the country are now using them both inside and outside on many home styles because of the amount of light they show.

The onion lights are commonly used outdoors near one’s front door, side doors, decks, porch areas, as well as inside in bedrooms, hallways, bathrooms, etc.

Mounting Area: 5.25” in Diameter.
Mounting Height: 6” from center of the J-box to top of the lantern.

Debbie –
I received the lantern and love it! I am so grateful to you and Craig for your help and talent in crafting this piece for me. It will definitely be a spectacular highlight of my new kitchen. I will be sure to send you a picture of it once my renovation is complete.

I smile from the inside out every time I look at it because it reminds me of Chatham which is so near and dear to my heart. Thank you for this precious gift.
