It accommodates two Candelabra Bulbs 60 watts maximum, but may be made with single medium base bulb lit from top.

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.

Hi Debbie & Craig,
The lanterns arrived safely, and due to Hurricane Charlie, we decided to wait until the storm passed to hang it. It is very unique, and we appreciate the craftsmanship involved in this special piece. Thanks a million!
