W.T.Kirkman Lanterns Updates & Articles

Brand New Rust Finish!

By Madison Kirkman - December 5, 2023 -

We have developed a new process that can achieve large amounts of rust in just a few days time on otherwise brand new steel. On any of our lamps that have Steel, we can do a rust finish. If you’ve been looking for a old looking lamp or lantern, and our aged finishes were not your cup of tea, a rust finish with the bright oranges, reds, and browns may be perfect!

Ask about this finishes’ availability on any of our lamps or lanterns!
