It's a gorgeous lantern, well made and beautifully painted. It is so colourful when the sun shines through it. I haven't tried it with a candle at night yet (too cold) but am looking forward to enjoying it in the summer. I don't need to go to Morocco now. It isn't a cheap lantern but the quality of the metal and the work that has gone into the decoration is well worth it. I'm going to order a roundel soon as well.
