If you travel in New England, you will notice that so many of the outdoor lighting styles hearken back to our colonial past. In our opinion, NOBODY manufacturers this style of lighting better than Northeast Lanterns Ltd

Northeast Lantern began doing business when the President, Skip Heal, had a dream to manufacture and sell solid copper and solid brass fixtures. Starting out in a little rented space, he slowly grew the business into what it is today. Employing over 25 people, the company now works out of a new 15,000 square foot facility. The experienced craftsmen and women fabricate, solder and finish each lantern by hand.
Their intention is to continue to grow the business by offering current and potential customer hand-crafted, U.S.-made products at an outstanding price. Northeast Lantern is an environmentally friendly manufacturer and is a state permitted facility.

Only the glass is not covered (for obvious reasons).

The Onion Collection is certainly one of their most popular...so much so that it is incorporated into their logo. This is a traditional design that Northeast Lanterns has enhanced with their own particular touch of hand-crafted quality. These collections showcase some of the aspects that make Northeast Lanterns unique: the fixtures are solid brass or solid copper, each backed by a lifetime guarantee. All glass is removable, replaceable, and washable. Several types of glass are offered, depending on the look you are going for: clear, optic (creates a "banded" look), seedy, and optic seedy. The "seedy" glass tends to give the fixture more of a maritime look. Other popular colonial style collections include the Adams Collection, the Heal Collection (named after the founder) and the Suffolk Collection.
Northeast Lanterns finishes are applied by hand and can vary from fixture to fixture. They try to match each as close as possible. They do not lacquer their fixtures so the will age naturally and evenly in the same environment. All outdoor fixtures, no matter what finish is ordered, will turn dark and in time will "verdi", depending on the location. The color of their applied Verid finish can vary depending on what mixture and time of day the finish is applied. Some of the Verdi will wear off when placed outdoors. When installing interior fixtures, care should be taken to keep oily fingerprints off the finish. If in time the fixture shows prints, they may be removed with a metal polish applied to a cloth and rubbed gently.
