Q & A of the Day
I need to know the height of the mount and the height from the top of the glass to the top of the lamp to determine if i have enough room to mount the sconce.

Long-awaited post lantern fits the bill
This lantern is just what I wanted. It's sturdy, standing on two arms where most of this style have one. I don't have to disassemble it to change the bulb, yet the bulb is well-sheltered from the elements. The style suits my house and looks like it will age well. It seems sturdy so far (only had it a couple weeks now), was straight-forward to install, and was affordable. Plus it's dark-sky compliant.
Useful tip: The Maxim Lighting Post Mount with the Empire Bronze (item: MX-2000, finish: EB) is a great color match, if you need such a mount. Designers Fountain doesn't offer one.
The only two drawbacks were as follow:
1) Not made in U.S.
2) Product seems to be chronically backordered. I waited over three months for mine to arrive from the manufacturer. This is no complaint about Arcadian Lighting. This lantern was backordered at every site I found it listed. If Designers Fountain could fix its supply-side slow-down(s), I'm sure it would find a lot more happy customers. If they're having trouble with production in China (where these are made) or in shipping/customs, maybe they could insource those manufacturing jobs.
