Bevolo’s gas lanterns are hand crafted, and will give your neighborhood, home, or business a touch of traditional elegance that will improve the look of any location. Our gas lanterns have been an icon of New Orleans since the 1940s.
"This Bevolo original was designed in the 1940s by world renowned architect A. Hays Town and Andrew Bevolo Sr. This Original French Quarter lantern adorns many historic buildings across the country. The light can be used with a wide range of architectural styles. It is available in natural gas, liquid propane, and electric."
Gas Lanterns: Hand-Crafted Beauty by Bevolo Artisans
Our gas lanterns and French Quarter lights are made with the finest quality brass and copper.
Each Bevolo light starts out as raw copper, and then once the lantern is hand riveted together, we use oxidation to give the copper an antique look.
We make sure our local artisans pay attention to every small detail. When you purchase Bevolo lights you’re choosing a tradition that has generations of artisan experience and expertise built into each lantern.

When selecting outdoor lighting options for a home, a decision inevitably needs to be made between gas lighting options and electric lighting options. Both options provide an exceptional experience at a comparable expense, but some of the popular benefits of gas lighting for homes are as follows:
Gas lighting provides a durable and dependable option for outdoor lighting that is not dependent on electricity. Naturally, gas lights do not require electrical wiring and/or will prove functional even when the power goes out.
Purely as a matter of preference, gas lighting provides a classic ambiance that appeals to those searching for a certain aesthetic. They make a statement of elegance that invites the eyes of guests and passersby. The organic glow of a flame is softer than the hard light of a bulb and provides less glare and unkind shade.
As a matter of maintenance, gas lights require less in the sense that they don’t demand the interval changing of light bulbs. An added benefit is that insects are not drawn to gas lighting in the same way as they are to electric lighting.
Also, as with all of our solutions, gas lighting options are available in a wide assortment of styles.
