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 Equestrian Copper Gas Lantern

We know you’ll fall in love with our Equestrian copper lantern and its sleek straight lines, rectangular contemporary structure, and clean appearance.



The Equestrian copper lantern by American Gas Lamp Works is a unique blend of rustic charm and high-quality craftsmanship. Inspired by equestrian details, this lantern is more than just a light source; it’s a statement piece that adds character to any outdoor space. Available in three sizes—residential, mid-size, and estate—the Equestrian copper lantern offers a range of options to fit various settings. Whether mounted on a post, pier, wall, or hung, the lantern’s adaptability makes it a versatile choice for different architectural styles.

Distinct from other models, the Equestrian copper lantern features a unique rectangular shape. This design element not only adds a touch of modernity but also allows for a broader distribution of light. The shape complements the equestrian-inspired details, creating a harmonious blend of traditional and contemporary aesthetics.

For illumination, the Equestrian copper lantern offers a variety of options to suit individual preferences. It can operate on natural gas, propane, or electricity, providing flexibility in energy choices. The gas models come with electronic ignition, and Open Flame Burners are available for those who prefer the classic look of a gas lamp. Alternatively, an electric line of incandescent fixtures is available for LED and traditional light bulbs, offering a modern twist to the Equestrian copper lantern’s rustic charm.

The natural copper construction of the Equestrian copper lantern adds another layer of uniqueness. This material is durable and ages gracefully, developing a patina over time. This natural aging process ensures that each lantern becomes a one-of-a-kind piece, enhancing its aesthetic appeal. With its UL certification, the Equestrian copper lantern meets safety standards, making it a reliable and stylish addition to any outdoor space.

We Can Make This Lamp Electric, Too. 

All of our lamps can be built with low maintenance, energy-efficient LEDs. The Equestrian copper lantern 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. We also provide fully illustrated instructions that should make it easy to install by your local plumber or certified gas specialist.
