About Sandwich Lantern of Cape CodEntrance to Sandwich Industrial Park

Sandwich Lantern wouldn’t exist today without a growing demand for a handmade onion lantern style that began in the 1980s. Current owner Steve Sherman was working for his uncle, Malcolm Sherman, at his electrical supply company. The onion lantern style very quickly became a popular product amongst their customers. The company was only a distributor at the time, and it was clear the supply could not handle the demand for the product.

Malcolm decided that his company needed to change direction. He began purchasing necessary equipment and materials to manufacture onion lanterns, which led to Steve manufacturing the lanterns for his uncle starting in 1988.

Unfortunately 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.

However in 2010, Steve was able to put the business back in the Sherman family name. He has continued manufacturing handcrafted lanterns and other products with the help of his son, Pete, and his nephew, Jason. You may view these onion lanterns here.

Sandwich Lantern purchased J.E. Lighting in 2015, a chandelier and sconce manufacturer. Michael Sampson is now manufacturing these fixtures on location, whom also has 30 years of experience. All of these chandeliers and sconces are handcrafted of solid brass, with both electrical and candle options available.
