We have been selling Oil Lamps & Lanterns since 1998. We started small, with the idea of bringing a unique product to the market that that people would want for ambient and emergency lighting. The business was born in our garage, and has steadily grown year after year. We are proud to have thousands of satisfied customers over the years. Check our customer testimonials and references. You can also find our lamps in fine restaurants around the world, and in many Movie and TV productions!
Our Oil Lamps & Lanterns are in stock at our Rutland Vermont Warehouse. We ship within 24 hours or less, and it's not uncommon that an order will go out within hours of being placed. We also have a 30 day (unused) money back guarantee. We take pride in the fact that we offer unique, quality products with a personal touch. There is no other business like ours out there on the web! We sincerely enjoy working with each and every customer to meet their needs and listen to their complaints or compliments.
So what about our lanterns? Not all lanterns are made equally, that’s for sure. Our Vermont Lanterns Brand are made of solid brass and we do not have any brass plated tin models. Go ahead, do the magnet test it won’t stick! Many of our lanterns are made in India, others are made right here in the USA or imported from Europe. I personally travel every year to meet with our producers in India and work directly with them on adjustments and new model designs. We only do business with companies that are small to medium in size, have a mature and dedicated work force, pay their people a living wage and do not use child labor, period. Every lantern we offer is a meticulously handmade brass handicraft. They do not come from a big factory mechanized process, churning out products in zombie like monotonous work conditions. There is a personality and a person behind each piece. The lantern you see is the handwork of a craftsman who takes pride in his profession.
The earth's ecosystem and natural resources are not impervious to abuse and overuse, and it's important to do as much as we can to preserve this precious place. Our lifestyle choices very much affect the quality of life for all those generations to come. Keeping this in mind, we do whatever we can within our business to cut down on our 'carbon' footprint, and the senseless waste that can go on within a larger company. We use packing material from recycled and biodegradable materials and our warehouse is highly energy efficient.
So here you are, please stay awhile look at our brass lantern products, and read the customer reviews. Come back often, we are always updating the product line with new and exciting Lamps & Lanterns. If you have any questions, give us a call, we’d love to talk to you.
