The lantern is made from a buff stoneware clay. The celadon color is not a genuine celadon which is made from iron but, instead from copper and chrome. I wouldn't have mentioned it if I wasn't proud of it. As with any lantern it gets hot so care should be taken. The lantern looks quite nice with the use of the little electric candles. From previous experience (I test these) this lantern was given a base so to protect from heat on the bottom. Common sense should be used in the use with real candles and incense. The pictures show it used with cone incense. With the sand deposited inside, stick incense can be used also. With stick incense it should be used on a plate or bowl and with the cover upside down to catch ashes. The cover gets quite hot with the use of candles as would be expected. So, if the lantern is used this way, as with any candle, keep combustibles and flammable cats away. A small packet of sand (blasting sand) and an incense cone are included. The cone incense stains the bottom of the cover, but being made of stoneware and glaze the stain scrubs off AFTER COOLING, with warm water or you can leavit. I do. The lantern is 5-1/2" tall and the cover is 5-1/2" wide and weighs 1 lb 1 oz with sand and incense and no package.

Returns and exchange details
GUARANTEE: I take pride in my work and want everyone to be happy with each item they buy from me. If you are unhappy with an item, please contact me, I am happy to offer a refund upon return of the item, intact. I will accept returns sent back in original packaging, and insured for the full value within 10 days. I will not refund the return postage costs.
HANDMADE ITEMS: Please remember that each item listed is individually, hand-made. Therefore, there will be no two items that are the same, even in a set, each item will be unique and slightly different. I take pictures that show the good and not so good stuff about my pottery. LOOK AT THE PICTURES! I try to show all sides, inside and the base.
MY OTHER WEB-SITE: Eastonpottery.net is another Etsy site, created on Etsys Pattern format. If your inclined for more info and a different look, go there. I also have a blog on that site which may interest a few.
SALES TAX: At this time, I am not sure what tax I must include. If orders are placed from Massachusetts, you can assume that the tax is included in the published total and I will pay the tax.
DISCOUNTS I offer a 20%, minimum discount on repeat orders.
Etsy, as far as i can tell, doesn't make exchanges easy. Etsy tracks my inventory digitally. I cant exchange an item after it has shipped. The website doesn't seem to be able to handle a price difference for an exchange. If you wish to exchange before an item is shipped, I can cancel the order and give you a refund. Then, if you wish, you can order the item you want, or not.
If an item is ordered, but not shipped, just contact me and I'll issue a cancellation. No problem. IF THE ITEM IS SHIPPED...PROBLEM. In that case it gets complicated. Please read my descriptions to determine you are ordering what you actually want. I try to take care with the descriptions so a buyer will know what they are buying.
CUSTOM ORDER: I will consider custom projects. Please contact me with your interests. I am reluctant to do this as the expectations on appearance vary and many times cant be matched.
SPECIAL ORDER TURN AROUND...2 months, minimum. For special orders...you should understand about my process. Pottery is made on a potters wheel or handbuilt, WET. The pieces are then finished...handles, covers, spouts, etc It must be dried. For each item or group of items made, it takes up to a week to dry. It takes a month to accumulte enough ware fo a bisk firing. Then the bisk ware must be glazed. This process stops all wheel production (for me, a one person shop) while the bisk is glazed. This, at best takes another month. If someone asks if i can make and fire just their piece...no. Kilns do not fire well even 1/2 full.
