Coach Hanging Lantern Wall Light Black 60 W
Cheap and Cheerful
I bought 3 of these as they were in the sale. A bit fiddley to install but for Â£9.99 I can put up with that. As other reviewers have said, the screws could be a little longer to secure the faceplate to the back but with a little patience you'll get there. Can't really comment on their reliability as I only put them up a couple of days ago.

This was not my 1st choice but the only one in stock. Seemed fine and looks good.

Inexpensive, average quality
Very lightweight metal body and yet proper glass panels. Design seems to assume cable entry from the rear or below - if your cable is coming from above, which is quite probable, you may have to make adjustments so that the item will sit flush against the wall. The cable grommet was very loose fitting, which caused me some difficulty, as it kept pushing through and detaching. Above niggles aside, this is very good value and looks good once installed.

Time v. Cost
I have just spent about two hours fitting athis replacement porch lamp. it is nicely dEsigned except that the captive nuts behind the wall plate need to be held with more than masking tape - perhaps bluetak. This caused me to strip the thread in the minuscule brass nuts holding the fitting to the wall plate. -whey not a sensible size. Others have observed the glass fitting is haphazard but takes AGES. Fitting the lantern to the lamp holder requires yet more teeny weeny bolts and nuts and one is at the back masked by the bracket. Good grief!! Did the designer ever build one.
All that said, I like the look of it. Be warned it will cost you three times longer than you think to install and have a supply of small nuts to hand. I hope the bulb really does last 10000 hours :)
I'll look for a different lamp next time. Competent DIYEr
