A Brief History of Primo Lanterns

Gas lanterns have a long, impressive history. As far back as the 16th and 17th centuries, Paris and London began using them to light public spaces and intersections. Many of the designs from this time period have remained fairly unchanged, which is precisely why a lantern instantly brings an old-world charm to any space. This is also why, in the world of lanterns, experience matters. French Market Lanterns is rooted in three generations of lighting industry experts. We only partner with manufacturers who create quality products that also withstand the test of time. One such supplier is Primo Lanterns, a company that has been successful for over forty years.

Primo Lanterns’ artisans handcraft every fixture from copper. Copper is not only a durable finish choice but also a beautiful one. It can be quickly polished to maintain its original look, or left alone to gracefully age; unveiling a gorgeous, natural patina. Hard-wearing brass hinges and tempered glass means the doors of Primo’s lanterns shut firmly. This snug fit protects the electrical components and prevents flame blowouts when featured outdoors.
