About Sandwich Lantern of Cape Cod
Sandwich Lantern would have never existed without a growing demand for the handmade onion lantern style that occurred in the 1980s. Current owner Steve Sherman was working for his uncle Malcolm Sherman at his electrical supply company, when the onion lantern style became a popular product amongst their customers. Malcolm decided that his company needed to change direction and start to handcraft onion lanterns. He began purchasing the necessary equipment and materials to do so, and Steve began creating these handmade lanterns for the company in 1988.
Malcolm Sherman passed away in 1990, which led to the sale of the company to another owner. Steve Sherman stayed with the company and continued to manufacture these handmade lanterns for the next 20 years. In 2010, Steve was able to put the business back in the Sherman name, and has continued manufacturing handcrafted lanterns and other products with the help of his son, Pete, and his nephew, Jason.
