stands six feet tall
The pillar stands six feet tall and holds five lanterns. The lanterns use a clean burning fuel which allows the Aged Pillar Lantern Stand to be inside or out. It’s a show stopper and becomes more brilliant as the evening sun fades to night. The flickering light from each lantern reflects across the aged finish of the pillar creating a warm charming atmosphere. Get the Aged Navajo White over Ipswich Pine Finish here!
simple indoor/outdoor mason jar tabletop lanterns
The simple indoor/outdoor tabletop lanterns are made from 16-ounce teal-colored glass Mason jars by Pioneer Woman. The lids have a vibrant floral pattern in red and white. During the day the teal colored mason jars shine with gleams of light as they reflect the sun and by night as they reflect the lantern flames. Clear super sticky pads hold the lanterns safely in place if bumped but also allow for easy removal for refueling.

aged black iron pipes
Standard galvanized plumbing pipe transformed by a little paint create the lantern’s aged black iron finish pipe supports. The bright colors and varied time-gone-by patterns of the coasters topping each support bring just the right punch and whimsy to the overall look. They’re both fun and provide a bit of surprise.
