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.

Dear Debbie and Craig,
Just a note to let you know that the lanterns we ordered and received from you in 2005 are still just as beautiful as the day they were hung. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you again after 11 years.
