WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT ME?

In my spare time, I like to play with lanterns. No big deal.

joseph bokanoski antique lanterns

My name is Joseph Bokanoski. I fell in love with lanterns one day while at the local flea market with my wife, and from that day on it became an obsession. The history and engineering masterpieces drew me in deeper. I just had to know everything I could about lanterns, and my journey continues everyday. My primary collection is the fascination of early removable globe patents. Many of you might know me but for the rest of you , you can catch me hanging out on my Facebook group page.                ANTIQUE LANTERN COLLECTORS.

Below is some pieces from my collection, more can be found here.
