Northeast Lantern Lighting at Carolina Rustica
Northeast Lantern Ltd. began doing business in 1987 when the President, Skip Heal, had a dream to manufacture and sell solid copper and brass fixtures in styles ranging from colonial to contemporary. Like so many home grown businesses, Skip starting out in a little rented space, then 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. From the simple to the simply elegant, Northeast Lanterns has it all! Northeast Lanterns is known for its tradition of quality lighting at affordable pricing. Based in Exeter, NH, Northeast Lanterns produces all of its products on-site, and each year introduces new styling and innovative products to meet most lighting needs. What sets Northeast Lantern apart from the competition is the workmanship and attention to detail displayed by their craftsmen and the honest desire by all of their employees to serve their customers.
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.

Important Note about Finishes
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.
Lead times on most products average about 21 days, since they are made to order. Some items in select finishes may take longer. Northeast Lanterns also has a Quick Ship program for their most popular items in the most popular finishes. These items are boxed up and ready to go in 2-3 days. We make every effort to stay current with product delays or discontinuations, and notify you as soon as we are made aware of any changes.
