The Simplest Form of Lantern Lights
Lanterns have been around for hundreds of years as a form of lighting. They started as very simple affairs with a four-sided frame, usually made by the local blacksmith featuring a hinged door, glass panels and an open top. A candle would have been placed in the bottom to give light. As time passed, those who could afford them had larger lanterns made that were capable of holding twenty or more candles. These were fitted with either ropes or chains and hung from the ceiling to illuminate larger spaces. They would have been fitted with a pulley system so they could be lowered to replace the candles and raised back into position afterwards.
Candles have been replaced with modern light bulbs but the initial design concept remains to this day. They still feature a metal frame and either open sides or glass panels, with many traditional or more contemporary designs to choose from. Modern techniques allow the construction of more complex designs in a comprehensive range of materials and finishes. Modern glass manufacturing gives us the option of round lanterns using curved glass.
