About Us




The small family run business of Lancaster Antiques specialises in quality antique lamps and chandeliers, with a proven track record in supplying clients both here and abroad with original lamps, chandeliers, candelabra and interesting items for the home.


Wendy Lancaster has built up the business since 1990, carefully choosing her small but select stock for style, authenticity, originality and quality of workmanship. Comprehensive, accurate descriptions accompany items, detailing age, provenance and any restoration, repair or conversion, inspiring confidence in customers. Her daughter Lois has recently joined the business and brings with her a more modern approach, including creating and running the sales side on the internet. 

The quality lighting stock ranges from the Victorian era to the 1930s and 40s and includes gas and candle-powered pieces that have been converted to electricity in accordance with the UK electrical regulations. Our own electrician has rewired most of our items unless stated in the description.

We also supply authentic original wall lights – some individual, some in pairs or sets of three or four – as well as every type of antique lamp and lantern for indoor and outdoor use.

Our love of quality items extends to other household metalware made during the Victorian, Edwardian, Arts and Crafts or Art Nouveau period, and we keep a range of fire items, desk sets, mirrors and anything we think would appeal to our regular customers. 

Lighting is our passion. Let Lancaster’s Light The Way !
