Please post pics of your exterior lanterns

nieciebAugust 1, 2009

I am trying to find exterior propane lanterns for my southern plantationey/farmhousey home. I need a lantern or lanterns that would suit this style home. I am undecided if I want one large lantern in front of the front door or one on each side. The door is centered in the middle of the house with a 10' wide porch that is 60' long, the reason for thinking the lanterns on each side of the door would maybe look better. The door with sidelights is 7' 3" wide.

I just realized that you posted for Propane
I actually own two COLEMAN PROPANE LANTERNS that no one in my household is using you can have them for $50.00...

Sorry about the mix-up.

Just e-mail with Propane Lanterns in the Subject so I will know it's not the others I posted. [lol]

The two lanterns would come in handy in case of a power outage. You will be receieving the lantern with the new globe, a green ventilator with a metal handle for easy carrying and a plastic stand to put the canister of gas on which holds the lantern up. You do not get the gas because it is against the law to ship gas. If interested contact me via e-mail and I will exchange my phone number there.

If you haven't made a decision yet, check out this web site for a nice selection of lanterns you can select from. 2 lanterns on either side of the door is the right look for a plantation stye home. All the gas lanterns on this site are available for use with propane, just select propane as the gas type listed with each fixture. Each fixture is availble in different sizes. Look at the Plantation Lanterns for the most economical selections.
