Multicolored Chinese paper lanterns
August 3, 2019 8:19 PM   Subscribe

I love a particular kind of Chinese paper lantern, which seems to have vanished from the Earth -- or at least as much of the Earth as is reachable by English-language internet. I just found some from someone on Etsy who found them used and doesn't have any more. Yay! But they only last for three months or so, before they're completely faded. I have found many, many Chinese lanterns online -- but not these. Please help me source them!

Do you have any other pictures or description? I can't quite tell what I'm looking at. Are these an unusual shape? Are they always multicolored in that way?

Thanks, but those are too small and only one main color. The ones I like are about 8" in diameter and multi-lobed, each lobe a different color.

Pearl River has some that might be close to what you are looking for.
