Spec Sheet
Are gas lamps safe?

Yes! American Gas Lamp Works gas and electric lamps employ well-proven designs and technologies. Gas lighting actually predates electric lighting by several decades, and the Welsbach mantle lighting system has been used the world over for more than a century. You should keep in mind that gas lamps do get hot and should not be placed where they can be touched by children or animals.

What types of gas do your lamps use?

Our open flickering flame gas lamps can be equipped for use with natural gas (NG) ONLY. Our Welsbach mantle gas lamps can be equipped for use with natural gas (NG) or liquid propane (LP). Our electric lamps require 120V electricity.

How much gas do AGLW fixtures burn when operating?

The amount of gas your lamps will use depends on the type of gas and burner you’re using. Please refer to our BTUs and Gas Facts page for gas usage along various configurations.

The Atlas Copper Hanging Gas Lantern

We know you’ll fall in love with our Atlas style lamp and it’s sleek straight lines, rectangular contemporary structure, and clean appearance.



The Atlas lamp by American Gas Lamp Works is inspired by the legendary figure Atlas, known for his strength and endurance. This lamp embodies these qualities through its robust design and durable materials. Available in three sizes—residential, mid-size, and estate—the Atlas lamp offers versatility for different spaces. It can be mounted on a post, pier, wall, or even used as a hanging gas lantern, providing a range of installation options to suit various architectural needs.

One of the most striking features of the Atlas lamp is its natural copper construction. This material is not only durable but also ages gracefully. Over time, the copper develops a unique patina, giving the lamp a rustic yet elegant appearance. This natural finish ensures that each Atlas lamp becomes a distinctive piece, adding a touch of individuality to any setting, whether mounted in an entryway or used as hanging gas lanterns in a garden..

Illumination options for the Atlas lamp are diverse and adaptable. It can operate on natural gas, propane, or electricity, offering flexibility for different energy needs. For those who prefer the classic look of a gas lamp, Open Flame Burners are available, creating a variety of charming flame shapes. Alternatively, an electric socket line is available for those who prefer LED or traditional light bulbs, adding a modern touch to the lamp’s timeless design.

The lamp is also UL certified, ensuring it meets safety standards. Tempered glass is included, with additional glass options available for further customization. With its blend of strength, endurance, and aesthetic appeal, the Atlas lamp is a fitting tribute to its legendary namesake.

We Can Make This Lamp Electric, Too.

All of our lamps can be built with low maintenance, energy-efficient LEDs. This beautiful lamp can be illuminated by two LED light bulbs configured with an Electric Dual Inverted Candelabra Base. Photocell upgrade options are even available if you want to customize this lamp to meet your needs.

Save Money on Reduced Energy.

These LED light fixtures each produce 450 lumens of Warm White light. That usually requires the equivalent of a 40W light bulb, but these LED lights each only consume 4.5W of power, saving you money and time on maintenance costs every day you have this fixture installed.

Solid Quality that is Built to Last.

Our fixtures have been handmade in Pittsburgh, PA for over 60 years. They are built to last with high quality American metal and a great mix of decorative and functional features. All cast metal frames come with a lifetime warranty.

Easy to Install.

Each fixture comes with hardware recommendations based on the material you are mounting it on, making it easy to use as a mounted fixture or a hanging gas lantern. We also provide fully illustrated instructions that should make it easy to install by your local plumber or certified gas specialist.
