Lanterns

Chinese lanterns are more than just decorations, they are symbolic of events such as births, deaths and even approaching danger. The Chinese Lantern Festival has been celebrated since the beginning of the Han Dynasty (206 BC - 221 AD) and the origins for this festival have been dated back as far as 250 BC.

The lanterns used today have remained virtually unchanged in design. A frame that surrounds the candle is assembled from pliable bamboo, sturdy redwood or inexpensive wire. Thin or oiled paper, gauze or silk fabric, are used to cover the frame and soften the harsh light of a naked flame.

While the origins of many lantern designs are highly symbolic or ritualistic, lanterns were also used in daily life as decorative protective shields for candles and lights. The lanterns in our range have been selected because of their highly decorative nature.

While originally used in China as lantern covers for candles and lights, the highly flammable nature of both paper and silk poses a real fire risk. The lanterns in our range are sold as decorative items only and should not be used with candles or heat generating lighting.
