When I was contacted by Jo Alexander asking if I'd like to review a pair of their Rust Linear Lanterns, I jumped at the chance. We love to sit outside on an evening, if we're lucky enough to get any decent weather, so I thought these would be a lovely addition to the garden.
Delivery of the item was swift, and they came well packaged. Bubble wrap was used for extra protection. I was impressed by how well made the lanterns are, they're quite sturdy and look as though they're made to last.
The lanterns are 90cm tall and can be placed in the ground or a plant pot. They have a clear glass cup which sits inside the lantern in to which a tea light is placed.
I think the metal work is especially attractive.
I tried the lanterns out in the dark, and they give off a lovely glow. The glass cup is tall enough to protect the tea light from any breeze, so there shouldn't be any problems with the flame being blown out. They gave off a lovely glow.
I'm looking forward to having some warmer weather now so that I can sit in the garden and take full advantage of the lanterns.
If you fancy a pair yourself, they retail at £14.99, or they'd make a lovely gift.
Jo Alexander is a small privately owned, family run business which is located just west of Cambridge. They sell all manner of garden products, ranging from furniture to wildlife boxes and planters. Do take a look at their website, they have a spring sale on at the moment.
I should just mention that the product was sent to me free of charge, but I have not been paid for writing this review.
