Colonial Onion Lights
Above all, Hammerworks offers a collection of handcrafted Colonial Onion Lights in a range of styles and sizes. In the first place, we create each classic style lantern with historical accuracy. In fact, you can choose from several sizes of wall, post or hanging models for your antique period house. Not to mention, our reproduction onion lanterns are made in your choice of solid copper, brass or custom verdigris Finish Options. In addition, we offer them with your choice of a standard single bulb or a variety of candelabra style options.
Cape Cod Onion Lantern
No matter what, an onion lantern is synonymous with a quintessential nautical design defining old Cape Cod craftsmanship. Of course, originally used as work lights on fishing vessels, these solid copper or brass fixtures have evolved to become suitable for a wide range of home designs. As a result, while they are popular for Cape Cod Style Homes, they’re also ideal for Early American, New England Farmhouse, and Lakeside Cottages among others.
Onion Wall Lanterns
As mentioned, while perfect for the Cape Cod architectural design, Onion Wall Lanterns are practical and functional for any setting. Furthermore, they coordinate with the similarly designed pole and pendant fixtures. By the same token, we make these nautical lanterns in several sizes, from the petite OL6 to the imposing RG12 model. Thus you’ll find one just right for any space.
In fact, you can use them in both indoor & outdoor settings. Of course, the apparent placement is on the exterior of your residence. However, interior uses range from entrance halls & kitchens to family rooms, bedrooms & bathrooms. Consequently, they’re suitable wherever light is needed. Not only that, the attractive design blends well with many decorative designs.
New England Nautical Post Tops
In the same fashion, we create New England style Nautical Post Tops completely by hand in your choice of solid copper or brass. Consequently, they withstand harsh weather conditions and will not rust or corrode. Moreover, these pole mounts have a standard 3″ post collar. Therefore, you can mount one on the Wooden or Aluminum Lantern Pole of your choice. Equally important, we offer these post fixtures in three different sizes (Models OL10, OL12 and RG12 ). As a matter of fact, you can choose from either a Round or Onion shaped glass globe. In either case, they coordinate perfectly with the Cape Cod wall and ceiling fixture models.
Hanging Onion Lights
In like manner, we create a selection of Hanging Colonial Onion Lights to complement the post and wall lanterns. Therefore, with a variety of sizes available you can easily complete your lighting design. As always, choose from the same solid copper, brass or custom verdigris finish. Most importantly, each rustic hanging light fixture is equipped with a matching ceiling canopy and 2 feet of chain. Not only that, just as with our Colonial Wooden Chandeliers additional chain is available for a minimal charge. In addition, we make these pendant lights with your choice of a standard single down-light or a variety of candelabra options. Furthermore, we supply them with sturdy clear glass for excellent illumination.
Generally speaking, these Early American pendants are primarily intended as outdoor lighting. However, you can use them in many interior locations throughout your house. Overall, from foyers to kitchen islands and beyond, the classic look of our Colonial Home Hanging Onion Lights lends itself to a multitude of uses.
Colonial Home Outdoor Lanterns
Comparatively, we also offer a wide variety of Colonial Home Outdoor Lanterns. As has been noted, each rustic style outside light fixture is always made completely by hand in the USA. In addition, any of these primitive exterior lights coordinate nicely to “mix and match” with the onion styles. For example, pair the Cape Cod Wall or the Copper Light W101 with POL12 Post mount for a simple yet classic effect. Finally, our exterior lighting models include a variety of Early American pole mounts, wall sconce, and overhead light fixtures.
Early American Lighting
Above all, our collection of Early American Lighting complements a wide variety of residential architectural designs. Most of all, this historic collection offers a classic look sure to please. Select the simple lines of New England Style Copper Post Lantern P101 or wall lantern model WM102 for a refined and graceful appearance. Thus, from a time-honored Colonial Williamsburg, Cape Cod Cottage or New England Style Farmhouse, any of our traditional home lantern models are ideal.
