Many of our lanterns can be built for mounting on a post or wall, or suspended for hanging applications. Early pieces were often made with translucent sections of horn rather than glass. All lanterns that utilize sheet glass are glazed with Basic Pane Glass. Blown Seeded Glass, Rippled Glass and Opalized Glass may be substituted for an additional charge. Post mounted lanterns are designed to accept a standard 3" diameter round collar and are provided with mounting screws and appropriate hardware.

Authentic Design's Boston Post Lantern is accurate in every detail to an original we acquired years ago. This reproduction lamp was used in the film version of "War of the Worlds" and (we believe) upstaged Tom Cruise in the final scenes of the movie! With handsome proportions and lovingly built, this is a legacy fixture for the home.
For post mounting, we recommend using our cradle bracket. Hand built in our Vermont workshops, it is custom fit to each lantern.
