This lantern is made from high-quality metal and a stainless steel copper finish top. It features a built-in automatic timer that runs for 6 hours on and 18 hours off (3-AAA batteries are included) and is UV printed with a sentimental quote. DO NOT use fire-burning candles in the lantern. Suitable for hanging or free-standing use indoors only. Recommended as an accent in floral arrangements for many occasions!
