Handcrafted Excellence

Blind solders, slotted collars, wrapped guards, are just a few of the extra steps taken by our 5 coppersmiths in the fabrication of our copper, brass and pewter lanterns. Blind solders done on the inside of the joints, so the soldering is never seen; slotted collars that fit into fabricated slots for structural soundness; wrapped guard joints with 20 gauge wire for bolstering strength of onion lantern cages.

Individual Numbered PlateOur master craftsmen and coppersmiths take great pride in their work,
and it shows in each and every lantern they hand craft. The pride in their workmanship manifests when they affix an individually numbered name plate to each finished lantern.


It is this pride in our craftsmanship that allows The Nauset Lantern Shop to guarantee your complete satisfaction
with your lantern.

Making LanternsNauset Lantern Shop is one of the few, perhaps only 1 or 2 others in the country, craftsmen who produce pewter lanterns. One recent customer who ordered 14 pewter wall lanterns in the Early American Style told me he had a difficult time finding a shop who produced hand-crafted pewter lanterns. We were thrilled to be able to help him.
