The Right Lighting For Your Project!

If your vintage home is in need of antique Colonial light fixtures, deciding what to replace them with may be a challenging undertaking. While there many modern styles to choose from, selecting a Colonial lighting fixture that is appropriate to the historic architecture of the home is an important decision. 

In the Colonial times lighting a room was a challenge, as electricity was not an option. Candles, and in later times kerosene, were the only fuel sources for Colonial lighting. Antique colonial lighting fixtures where commonly made of tin, iron and wood with brass being used for formal colonial homes.

Providing light in the dark Colonial homes was always a challenging task for the skilled craftsman that handcrafted each lighting fixture one by one, as we still do here at Colonial Lighting By Hammerworks. They would incorporate hand cut mirror into tin wall sconces to reflect light back into the room. Colonial tin wall sconces were also made with a reflector to help bounce light back into the room. Wood was often carved to create a body for a Colonial Chandelier with either Colonial iron or Colonial tin arms holding candles to hang for Colonial lighting the center of a room or over a dining table.

Colonial Lighting By Hammerworks has for over 30 years been creating these reproduction antique colonial lighting fixtures just as the skilled craftsmen of colonial times. Obviously electric has been incorporated into our great Colonial lighting fixtures, but we still offer burning candle as an option on most of our antique reproduction lighting fixtures. No matter what lighting fixture you choose for your colonial style home, you can be sure that any option offered by Colonial Lighting by Hammerworks is the right choice!
