Although I can’t give you a calendar, I can have a chat with you if you fill out the form.

If you have any questions, corrections, information, looking to sell, or would just like to talk lanterns, send me a message through the contact form below. I’m always happy to talk lanterns and love to learn something new.

Looking for Information?

Have a lantern you’d like to get identified? I’m glad to help out! I love seeing other people’s collections and lanterns. Even if the lantern isn’t in my collection I can probably help out with an ID.

Looking to sell?

As an active collector, I’m still regularly buying items. If you have a lantern, or even a collection you want to sell, get in touch, we might be able to work out a deal. I’m also especially interested in ephemera. Items such as postcards, advertising, catalogues, bill of sales, etc,. These items help immensely in my research and being able to provide accurate information.


I’ve contemplated this question for a while and have decided to not offer appraisals for lanterns. I’m first and foremost a collector. I can offer information for and identifications of lanterns, but I won’t do appraisals. What I may be willing to pay for an item is different from someone else, and as such it would be hard for me to accurately give you good information.

Contact Form

Below is a contact form you can use to get in touch with me. I’ve added the ability to attach files below, if you would like to send me images of a lantern, etc. The limit is 5 and they have to be smaller than 2 Megabytes each.
