This beautiful Lantern can be hung on a wall nail or carried by its handle. An early 20th-century design, called the Stonebridge Lantern (after its designer), it was developed and made in New York.
This handsome and accurate reproduction is 6-1/4 x 4-1/2 x 3/4" when folded flat, and 8-1/2" high (with a 4-1/2" square base) when set up. Made of brass with mica windows (a natural mineral that is heat resistant). Because of the vents and air intake design, the candle will not flicker, even when the lantern is being moved around. Weighs only 12 oz., and easy to pack for a camping trip. (Candles not included.) Get a pair and save. India.
Talk about old world charm! This brass lantern has it in spades. I'm talking beautiful design, charm, functionality, portability, and looks on top of that! It's truly a crowd pleaser. Wherever I take it, it always gets positive comments and I'm always asked where I acquired this little wonder. I love it. Whether the power is out, camping, or just sitting out at night with the neighbors, this little beauty delivers. I bought the white 9-hour candles with it, but intend to buy some of the beeswax candles from Garrett Wade as they burn longer and give off a pleasant odor. I love the fact that this is an entirely accurate reproduction of the original design. It's flicker free, the candles don't drip like you would think they might, and it puts out the most pleasant warm light you could imagine. Built solid, I expect this product to stand the test of time. The nostalgia this lantern imparts is entirely a thing it's own. And I much prefer burning and packing solid candles as opposed to liquid fuels, which can be hazardous and cumbersome. All in all, it was a great purchase and I'll probably be buying another one or two for friends, as they just can't stop admiring it. Thanks for offering such high quality products, Garrett Wade!

Taste of History
R G Baker (Floyds Knobs , Indiana)
The real McCoy. This lantern is not only a good decorator item , it really works. You can never tell when the power might go off and you are out of batteries for your flash lights. Campers should have one in their pack.

Great Little Lantern
Marty (Elizabeth City, North Carolina)
This is a great little lantern I keep two of them on a shelf over my throughway from my living room to my kitchen. They look great on display there. I keep a plumbers candle in each one and have a box of matches next to each one in case the power goes out. Several people have admired them and those people end up getting one for Christmas or a birthday.

I'm sorry to say it but these are really terrible quality. I just got mine after it had been backordered for quite some time and I am really, really disappointed. The thing barely folds out, comes un-set very easily, and good luck trying to get it to fold back down without damaging the mica windows. Its a shame but there are much better options out there. I really wanted to like this product but do yourself a favor and pass on it regardless of the videos you see from bushcraft and survival experts.

Old technology still works
John Taylor (Surprise, AZ)
This lantern has been such a blessing to me. A light weight way of bringing light to the darkness that is fitting of many of the old longhunters, campers and hikers. The warm light of a beeswax candle is such a soft inviting golden color that makes a space warm and inviting unlike a modern gas lantern or flashlight. I hope companies such as Garrett Wade continue to keep the old was alive by offering these kinds of products.

Mr. Fisherman (Hilsboro, Oregon)
I bought one of these lanterns after reading a review on Kifaru forums. I love this lantern and have taken it on thousands of miles worth of trips on my motorcycle. It has held up well and it has become a trusted companion. I need to get a couple more.

Great Little Candle Lantern
Marty (Elizabeth City, North Carolina)
I got 6 of these. I gave 3 away as gifts, but I kept 3. I keep two of them on a shelf over the doorway opened up with a candle in them ready for use in case the power goes out. I don't like to have open flame candles sitting around, I like the fact that the candle is enclosed and can be moved around easily without having to protect it from blowing out. It looks nice on the shelf on display also.

I bought the lantern a few years ago. A lot of money for a piece of junk. I thru it in the trash a few months ago.

Own a Piece of History
Steve (Bartlett, Tennessee)
This simple but ingenious lantern was designed more than one hundred years ago when an individual could take a clever idea from concept to reality with the use of handtools and basic manufacturing skills. Antique originals can still be found today, which is a testament to the durability of this design. Accurately reproduced down to the smallest detail, this timeless lantern functions flawlessly.

Hoodoo (Eveleth, Minnesota)
As an avid traveler in the boundary waters wilderness area year round, this lantern excels in packability and function, casting the perfect nostalgic glow on our long winter nights. Stays lit in rain, snow, wind and any mix. The handle stays cool for carrying. Any candle can be made to fit. Top notch.

A Retro Classic!
Liesl (Minneapolis, MN)
We took a pair of Stonebridges with us to a winter vigil and not only did they perform well, but drew lots of attention. It was about 15 degrees with snow and wind, and we were out a couple hours. Rock solid--and you can carry them with clumsy mittens! When we got home, they looked great on the mantle. They're not light weight, and we had to wrap foil around candles to get a snug fit, but these are minor complaints. With their folding design, these classics will be regular camping companions from here on in.
