A cob led lantern is a traditional Asian invention that has been used in many Asian countries for over hundreds of years. They are most often made out of bamboo, but today they are made out of various materials such as iron, copper, wood, or plastic. As with all other Asian lanterns, the main design is based on a shaped fan.
While there are many variations of this type of lantern, the basic design remains unchanged. Typically, a round base with an open top is covered with a variety of colored glass or plastic filaments, which hold a solar panel and bulbs.
Lanterns are used in Asia for various purposes, such as to illuminate streets, for viewing games, and as decoration. They have also been used in religious rituals, usually during Chinese New Year celebrations.
The earliest records of cob led lanterns are from ancient Chinese times. These leds can be traced back to an Indus Valley civilization in Northern India. It is believed that the Indus Valley civilizations are the first civilization to use the lanterns, possibly during the 2nd millennium BC.
In the Indus Valley, various types of cased leds can be found. The ceramic leds resemble that of the modern day: round base, open top, transparent base, and a filament hung down on top. Today, most lanterns still have these characteristics.
The earliest dura lantern was built about 5,000 years ago by the Shang dynasty in China. The leds are said to have been used to light a fire during celebrations. The beds are generally comprised of different materials including clay, glass, and porcelain. While the engravings and patterns can vary, the general idea is the same.
Pendant leds are also used in traditional Asian societies, but are not quite as widespread as those used in other parts of the world. Instead, they are more common in Asian countries such as Japan, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
Pendant beds can either be round or square shaped, and it is quite common to find them made out of ceramic or porcelain. The main difference between the round and square leds is the shape of the base, which is slightly offset, as is the filament.
The Japanese like to use smaller diameter made out of more porous materials. This allows more of the light to reach the bulb, as well as allowing for a better diffusion of the light. The result is a brighter look and a more balanced illumination.
In many Asian countries, cob led lanterns are believed to have originated in the Japanese islands. They are one of the most commonly used in weddings and festivities. There are also many famous Japanese poets who used these lanterns, including the one who invented the daemon.
There are many different kinds of beds available in different shapes, sizes, and colors. Traditionally, they are designed using patterns in copper, glass, or porcelain. Some lanterns, such as the zhen, are made out of high quality porcelain and exhibit a much higher quality than most lanterns.
These antique cob led lanterns may very well be worth some money on auction sites. Although their prices will be higher than those of modern lanterns, they can be a wonderful investment if you have the time to collect them. You could even sell them online and make a profit!
