Beyond the fueled lantern and the battery powered lantern is the LED lantern. Due to advancements in technology and a reduction in cost the LED lantern is widely available. LEDs have become brighter, more rugged and usually run longer than fluorescent and other bulbs.
Just as there are limitless effects, there are limitless designs and styles. Your outdoor lighting can be an antique design, an ornate design, or a vintage design which seamlessly blends the frayed garden design that is created by your blossoming flowers, shrubs, and trees. An old world atmosphere can be created by integrating a vintage outdoor lantern lighting system, conducive to relaxation during any season. With modern outdoor lighting designs, your yard can be emphasized as a summer location for sun-bathing or an evening location for conversation by lamp-light.
Installation of outdoor post lanterns is easier than you think, and can be done without the need for mixing a messy bag of concrete. Just make sure about 12 to 18 of the post is below the ground when you bury it and that you have placed rock around it to promote drainage away from the metal post to prevent rusting. For placement in colder areas, the bottom of the post should be deeper than the frost line so it remains stable during freezing. Allow a wide circle around the post with plenty of gravel. Make sure to plumb the post, and tamp generously. Before installation, check for the location of underground utilities to avoid an unfortunate incident!
In the Victorian era, gas lanterns were the staple, with a traditional Hexagonal shape and forged in bronze or copper. In modern times, many lanterns are still made of copper or brass, some with lacquer coating, or you can get the same look in a cost-effective, powder coated, lightweight aluminum, for a hard-wearing finish.
The use of the kerosene lantern declined after electricity became widely available and improvements to battery operated devices were made. Today, the kerosene lantern is largely a collectors item and is never lit. The kerosene lantern of the 19th century has largely been replaced by modern fueled lanterns and battery operated fluorescent lamp models. Because handling liquid fuel is dangerous, most modern lanterns use a small disposable steel cylinder to enclose the fuel and is simply disposed of when empty. This fuel is most likely propane. Of course, there are lanterns in use today that use kerosene, diesel and ethanol.
