Description : Our Moroccan lanterns are hand made in Marrakesh/Morocco using thin sheets of tin. Whole lantern design is printed on the metal sheets in the first stage, then cut into the required pieces for each lantern design and shape, then hammered following the prints to create the mystical piercing when illuminated. At a final stage, pierced pieces are soldered together with glass panels at the same time. The lantern is then finished at a traditional electroplating unit to give the dark antique brass look. The entire crafting process involves traditional tools only and no machinery has been used. Lanterns come as a shade only. Fitting into the ceiling requires using the existing suspended wires into the lantern. All lanterns come with a small door to allow for the bulb to be changed. For maximum shadow on the ceiling, we do recommend to use a clear bulb of a maximum of 60Watt.
