Named for its bulbous globe, this lantern—originally fueled by whale oil—has been a popular fixture for the entries of New England coastal cottages for more than 100 years.
New Hampshire craftspeople solder the body of this hearty lantern from solid brass. Only its globe, in either clear or seeded glass, is exempt from the maker's lifetime warranty. But the heavy-gauge wire cage should protect it from nor'easters.
