Charleston Collection


Our lanterns are hand-made by USA-based coppersmiths. Available in three finishes – Natural Copper, Antique Bronze or Powder Coated Black – our lanterns come with single, two- or three-light candelabras. Choose from one of our popular styles, such as the Charleston Collection, or contact us for a custom design. All of our lanterns can be equipped to use electric, natural gas or liquid propane fuel.
