SATURN PAPER LANTERN, OH HOW I LOVE THEE!
I've had my heart set on finding a Mid-Century Modern style, "Saturn" paper lantern for YEARS, now! At fist, I naively assumed I'd find them right away -I thought: "How hard could it possibly be?".
I have never been so wrong.
Thus, began my LONG, "Adventurous," (*read: Incredibly Frustrating) search, for my beloved "Saturn" paper lantern. I search anywhere and every where: grace sales, estate sales, antique stores -even specialty antique stores that only sold vintage, MOD. Of course, I searched the internet, particularly those whom also aimed directly (even only) toward, selling vintage pieces, from the 1960s and into the early '70s. And still, nothing.
After having come up short, time and time again, I was all but ready abandon my search and make my peace that ENTIRELY ALL "Saturn" paper lanterns, to have ever been, were forever lost to time...
BUT THEN, I came across the Paper Lantern Store and my search was back on! The Paper Lantern Store offers a PLETHORA of paper lanterns: various shapes, including MY "Saturn" paper lantern, sizes, and even colors -as well as, specialty colors to match any given occasion!
I was and am still AMAZED to have found the "Saturn" paper lantern of my dreams, right in front of me. I immediately placed my order with the Paper Lantern Store, and tried to wait paitiently for it to arrive!
ProsOffers lanterns in the 'Saturn" shape.
ConsOnly offers the "Saturn" same paper lantern in one size, which is very small.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to use mine because of its size; I need a much larger size, which is not offered by the Paper Lantern Store.
However, if you unless you are in the market for the "Round" shape ONLY, the Paper Lantern Store does offer a variety of sizes, including several different large options!
