About Us

Sutter's Mill Lantern Co.

Years ago, I purchased this old beat up lantern at an antique store. When I saw it sitting on the shelf I had one of those “Ah Ha” moments when you know you have a great idea. Back in 1989, there was not one lighting manufacturer in America that was authentically reproducing a UL approved lantern of this style. That day, I bought that antique lantern for $45.00 and the rest is history.

That old lantern became the inspiration for an entire product line of authentically reproduced and UL approved lanterns originally called the Sutter’s Mill Collection. What initially started as part of the Old California Lantern product line has now grown to become a standalone company called Sutter’s Mill Lantern.

Today, 27 years later, our product line has grown from that single antique lantern to over 30 beautiful designs. From wall mounted lanterns to wagon wheel chandeliers we offer an authentic lantern for every location in your home.

We are still a family run business that proudly hand makes each lantern at our factory in Orange, CA. Over the years, we have supplied our “American Made” lanterns to thousands of residences, restaurants and theme parks throughout the country.

We hope you enjoy our product line, and look forward to serving you.
