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.
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 Orleans, 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.

Good Morning Debbie, The lights, lanterns and sconces are beautiful! I was rather overwhelmed at the drive up yesterday and couldn’t focus on the lights (other than to see that the works you have in the shop are of excellent quality and design so I need have no fear about the lights in the boxes!). We opened them this morning and are so pleased. My husband’s eyes glowed when he saw the door lantern! Many thanks to you and your husband.
P.S. The white opal shades are much less “shocking” in real life than they appeared on the internet and probably would have been fine. Nonetheless, I held up the frosted shads where the lights will be going this morning and they are going to be just perfect. Thanks again.
