Both pieces of wood are painted red; the bottom has a painted gold band. There is an orange tassel hanging from the bottom piece of wood. There is a light bulb socket threaded through the top wooden base. The outlet holds a red light bulb. The electrical wires are bundled together with a metal twist wire. There is a metal wire hook attached to the top wooden base to allow the lantern to be hung. There is a paper label attached to the top wooden base which reads: "Wing Cheong Product. Fancy Lantern.
