The Right Lighting for Your Antique Colonial Home
If your vintage home is in need of antique light fixtures, deciding what to replace them
with may be a challenging undertaking. While there many modern styles to choose from,
selecting a 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.
Candle,and in later times kerosene were the only fuel sources for 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 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 iron or tin arms  holding
candles to hang for lighting the center of a room or over a dining table.
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 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 Lighting by Hammerworks is the right choice!
