New Orleans style gas lanterns are designed to look like the gas lanterns from the 1700 1800s when cities were lighted entirely by gas lights. There is no better example of this than the popular French Quarter style gas lantern which has changed very little since it was first used. It features a 4 sided glass enclosure with an angled copper tops and a single flame. Today these lanterns can be built to any size specification and flush mounted directly to a wall but when used in their traditional fashion they are usually mounted or hung with an iron bracket in order to get maximum radiance from the light.
The best lanterns will be those made individually by hand which means that manufacturers will cut and hammer in the traditional style (as opposed to machine made) to give a look of authenticity. The copper is normally treated so that it begins the oxidation process which adds to the "aged look." Significant improvements have also been made in the glass used in these lanterns to prevent shattering and keep out wind gusts which may have blown out the flame in older lanterns.
Salt lamps come in all shapes and sizes. They also come in a variety of styles. They can range from being a hollowed out chunk of salt, chunks of salt added to a bowl or basin where heat will be applied.. They can also be carved out special designs. The salt is mined from such places as the Himalayas, Russia, and central Europe. They lamps come in a variety of colors as well from dark pink, and yellow.
This can be plugged into any socket within the home. Or, perhaps when travelling and staying in a hotel. These can light up bedrooms, hallways and even bathrooms. They will create a gentle glow that is not overpowering or startling. Most will contain light emitting diodes, therefore are incredibly energy efficient.
