Daylight Savings

A garden at night can be a magical place. This unique solar-powered glass lamp ups the ambiance -- and visibility -- to do just that. Rich with texture and color, this handblown orb rests atop a three-foot, brushed steel stake that's ready to dazzle any nook in your garden. An integrated solar panel powers the bright, internal LED light, which turns on automatically when the sun goes down. Handmade in China.

Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Notes
Designed for year round, outdoor use. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. No solvents.

If exposed to 8+ hours of direct sunlight, globe will glow for approximately 4-6 hours. Glow time will vary according to the placement of the stake.

Instructions for use:
- Switch the stakes 'on' by sliding the toggle switch towards the "on". This is not a button; it is a toggle switch with a rubberized cover (on some models) for waterproofing. - Be sure that vegetation/shrubs/branches are not shading the solar panel

Comments about SOLAR-POWERED EARTH GLOBE:

I loved this idea. The first one I was sent was broken and didn't work. They were so nice to replace it with a new one, and that one doesn't work either. It's out in the sunny California weather all day so there's no chance it's not being charged. I'm really disappointed.

      Comments about SOLAR-POWERED EARTH GLOBE:

      I saw after ordering this that it was only 3" in diameter. The pictures make it look like the size of a bowling ball and very tall. When I visited my mother who it was a gift for, I saw that it was the size of a plum and 2 ft off the ground. Very disappointing. Pretty, and it holds a charge for an hour or so after being in the sun all day, but quite a letdown for the price.

        I bought one of these lights as a gift for my sister. She said it added something so special to her nighttime garden, I just had to get her one more to make it truly "magical"!

          I purchased sixteen (16) solar globes as thank you gifts for each person on our fundraising committee. The response was enthusiastically positive.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was very prompt. Some of the packaging was beat up and a few poles had punched through the cardboard box. However, nothing was broken.

          This was a great mother's day gift for my mom and my mother-in-law. My mom loves the way it glows each evening and it looks great in their garden.
