This CCL2531 8” Glass Onion Wall Lantern Caged is pictured here in Verdi Gris with clear glass. It accommodates a medium base bulb and is lit from the top. The Verdi Gris is not lacquered so will 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, as well as the uniqueness of this lantern.

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: 5.5” High x 4.5” Wide.
Mounting Height: 13.5” from center of the J-Box to top of the lantern.

Hi,

We received the lanterns yesterday afternoon. I was totally impressed with the packing, they were in excellent shape. I unpacked them and removed the onion globe for ease of installation, very nice feature! We looked at many handmade lanterns while on our summer vacation in Cape Cod. Yours were definitely the best quality! Thanks again for taking time with us to explain the way they were made and different finishes. Now every time we come home, we have a little bit of Cape Cod in our home.
