The Nova Onion Lantern
The Wall and Post Onion Lantern is an adaptation of copper onion lighting first used in this country on fishing schooners as nighttime working lights. They were popular, as the onion globe, by design, was unbreakable and protected the flame from wind and rain. Post Onion extra-large features two horizontal guards. Height dimension can be changed. Small onion, with special back box, is available for side post installation. Post collar adapter is available for flat surface installation.
