The Golden Globes

Elegance goes eco-friendly with this set of six hand-blown, solar-powered string lights. These artisan-made glass globes feature beautiful swirling colors of sea green, blue, gold and purple. Perfect for decorating arbors, archways, trees, umbrellas, railings or eaves. The solar panel is designed to orient 360 degrees for optimum solar collection. The panel can be staked, hung or mounted. Powered by the sun, these turn themselves on at dusk and off at dawn. Hand blown in China. Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Instructions: On/Off switch on bottom of solar housing compartment. Leave in the "on" position to continue the cycle of charge.

    I gave these to my in laws as an anniversary gift. I was finally able to see them hung up on their porch and they really glow beautifully! This was a great gift.

      Comments about SOLAR POWERED STRING LIGHTS:

      We have these lights strung on a tree branch in our back yard. It's lovely to look out each night and see their warm blue glow. We have left them outside year round and they have held up remarkably well--despite snow, thunderstorm, severe winds, heavy rains, etc. I've actually been surprised at how durable they are. Would make a nice gift.

        When these lights come on at night, they just make you smile. The hanging/installation are so easy and once they are up, they need nothing else but a little sunshine during the day.

        Comments about SOLAR POWERED STRING LIGHTS:

        I expected these to be brighter after collecting brilliant tx sun all day but they're barely visible from inside the house.

        I might use them at Christmas if I can get them to glow brighter.

        Comments about SOLAR POWERED STRING LIGHTS:

        The first set did not work and had to order a second set which worked perfectly. After reading the reviews on this product I was not surprised that this occurred. I also was prepared for the decorative lighting. Which was what I wanted. If your looking for bright lights this is not the product for you.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I can't say enough about the good service. I could not find any of the paper work in order to send back the lights which did not work. When I called the customer service they not only found my order they attempted 3 times to send me a return slip by email. Even calling me on the phone to make sure I had received the return slip. (It had to be sent to me by snail mail.) Once the company received the non working lights they did send a replacement, which worked perfectly. This did not cost me a dime!

          I have the lights strung on my deck railing and they are beautiful at night. I ordered 2 strings. The first worked the first night I hung them. The second works most of the time but the last light on the string works intermittently.

                I had trouble getting them to work, but after looking through the comments, I learned about the little switch on the back of the solar charger unit. Now they work beautifully and they're so much fun to look at in the evening! I'm going to get more!
