We purchased these from Carolina Lanterns in early January. We are doing a total house renovation of a 40 year old home. We had other options here in New Orleans to buy new gas lanterns but decided to do Carolina Lanterns after talking with Pippa. Though we could not touch or feel them, her knowledge about the product and quality are what sold us over the phone to make the purchase. They were installed today and the look amazing replacing the 40 year old Williamsburg style. I remember what Pippa said on the phone "once you light them, they will burn for years to come and be heirloom pieces for your home." They look wonderful and give a warm southern welcome on our porch.
