Since the Winter of '84, W. T. Kirkman Lanterns has become the Premier Tubular Lantern Manufacturer & Distributor in North America, and now routinely ship orders worldwide.  Many of the items we offer are exclusive to our line, and are not to be found elsewhere.  To complement our vast selection of new lanterns and parts, we also maintain an inventory of obsolete replacement parts and glass.  A major portion of our business is our custom electric fixtures, something we take great pride in.  Our years of experience results in an unaltered appearance that aims to be historically correct as well.  As each electric lantern is built to order, your specifications can be incorporated with ease.  You will find many of our electric lantern fixtures at major theme parks and restaurants from Coast to Coast.

Just as any fine antique, piece of jewelry, or work of art can not be appraised sight unseen, so it is with lanterns.  Depending on what you actually have, generally speaking, the value of each lantern might be worth anywhere from $5 to $1000 or more.  We do not appraise or provide values for lanterns via e-mail, nor do we know of any legitimate company that would.  The reason we don't is simply because there are too many variables.  Two lanterns of the same model might have two different values based on several factors, including:  date of manufacture, age and color of the globe, production variations, and production materials, not to mention rarity of the model and condition. For comparison purposes, you might also search for a similar lantern at www.ebay.com to get an idea of what collectors are spending.  Keep in mind that E-Bay is an auction site, and as such, items that are well marked usually fetch premium prices.    In the end, something is only worth the price that the prospective buyer is willing to pay.  We have also established a new web page to assist collectors in identifying fake lamps and lanterns.  Visit www.lanternnet.com/fakes.html

For those needing information for a particular Dietz Lamp or Lantern, please check our FAQ Page  or  R. E. Dietz Compendium, or send us an Info@lanternnet.comwith at least one photograph of the item in question.
