Welcome to our online showroom of lanterns!
Here you will find a wide variety of handcrafted lighting including wall lanterns, post lanterns, hanging lanterns, sconces, landscape lights, chandeliers , nautical lanterns, oil lamps, and landscape lighting, as well as solid western red cedar lampposts.
Most of our lighting is handcrafted in solid brass or solid copper with a choice of finishes for all lanterns – raw brass, antique brass, dark antique brass, dark brass, raw copper, antique copper, and verdigris. All finishes will naturally patina over time. We do not recommend painting fixtures. We also have many glass options which include clear glass, optic glass, clear seedy glass, and seedy marine glass.
We have added a line of lighting (Made in Vermont) that is available in Coastal Outdoor Finishes. Each of these finishes has been extensively tested in a salt spray chamber, and these finishes may be used on a home’s exterior within 20 miles of the coast.
Cape Cod Lanterns™, also known as S. Wilder & Co., is located in North Chatham, Massachusetts on Cape Cod, and is one of the oldest continuously operating businesses in the Commonwealth. S. Wilder & Co. has been in business since 1836, and reproduces authentic lantern designs. Our lanterns are made by hand just as the original lighting was, and may be customized to suit individual tastes or needs.

Just wanted to let you know the light arrived the day after you shipped it – and it is perfect! The slightly smaller size is just what we wanted and the house looks great at night (in the snow) with both lights on – very welcoming!
