There are some areas of imperfection as to where the lantern was hand-forged while it was made. Some parts, such as the dome is cast, but other parts, like the spiral posts, are hand-wrought making this lantern one of a kind. The inside of the domed gazebo shaped cage holds a set of 3 candelabra lights that shine a bright and inviting glow. It can also be used outside as long as it is not in direct contact with the elements and hangs under a portico, porch, or canopy.
