Perhaps I need a new outdoor front door fixture. The current one seems erratic. I want one that will turn on when someone comes to the door, like I have now.
Right now I have what is have is what is called a coachlight. s but I guess I want something different for a change.
I wanted to show you exactly what I want , but under Outdoor Wall Mounted LIghting, HD has 3900 items. Yes 3900!
The one I liked was rectangular on 4 sides, open on the bottom and conected to the wall at the top.
Something like this maybe with clear glass.

Really? There were open bottom lanterns? Is that true?
The one above looks something like an old English front door light, except that it's conected to the house at the top. How could that burn a candle or a kerosene or gas light, since flames go up?
So isn't it inherentely ridicuous, as nice as it looks?
Would you buy something that looks like a kerosene or gaslight but could not work like a gas light?
Or were there open-bottom lanterns?
