Thank you for your interest in our 18th century reproduction lighting and accessories. Just as in yesteryear, all of our hardwired lighting are handcrafted from start to finish. Because of the nature of our products, please note that there will be imperfections and irregularities that signify our products as uniquely handcrafted. All of our metal products are dipped in an antiquing solution and hand-rubbed for a distinctive patina. Our wooden chandeliers are distressed and are uniquely painted or stained to give them a weathered finish. Whatever product you choose, know that your selection will be made to look old making it an authentic reproduction.
Some of our products are imported. Most, but not all, of our products that are made in the USA are noted for your information. If you are concerned about ordering products that are made in the USA, please check with us before placing your order. The products that are imported began as designs from American artists and metalsmiths that are reproduced overseas by skilled craftsmen.
If you are lighting a new home or addition and are working with deadlines, please let us know so that we can do our very best to help you complete your project in a timely manner.
Some of our crafters work from their homes and workshops and do not mass manufacture their products. Consequently, some products are not UL (Underwriters Laboratories) Listed. All electrified fixtures that are UL Listed are noted for your information. Please know that all of our unlisted lighting are wired with UL approved electrical parts and are tested for safety. However, some townships, districts and municipalities have strict codes preventing certified electricians from installing lighting that is not UL Listed in newly constructed or remodeled homes. If you have any questions or concerns about this issue, please Contact Us for more information.
You can Follow Us on all social media where we post often to introduce you to new products or to offer a sale or a coupon. There you will find the button to subscribe to our newsletter that we try to send at least quarterly.
