Colonial Post Lanterns
First of all, at Hammerworks we handcraft our Colonial Post Lanterns in America. Above all, our meticulous attention to detail results in historical period accuracy. We fold, bend, cut and solder completely by hand. Thus, we produce an heirloom quality Colonial Copper Post Light. In addition, we offer a variety of finish options for our handcrafted lantern tops. Therefore, we custom make Copper Post Lights in your choice of verdigris, painted black, & antique brass in addition to copper. No matter which you choose, the hand rubbed antique copper and brass finish gives the light fixture an attractive satin patina, while verdigris provides a rustic weathered appearance.
Most notably, we make each handcrafted pole light with an industry standard 3″ fitter. Thus, whether you choose a Wooden Cedar Lamp Post or one of our Aluminum Poles, it will mount securely. More importantly, our custom solid brass and Copper Outdoor Post Lanterns will last for years to come.
Early American Pole Light
Especially relevant, we design our rustic handcrafted Early American Pole Light to provide a glowing warmth, similar to Colonial Wooden Chandeliers. Yet the beauty of traditional outdoor solid copper or brass lamps also provide a dramatic accent in daytime. Furthermore, the classic look of reproduction home post lights, Colonial Wall lanterns & hanging fixtures endures as a staple of outdoor illumination. As a result, due to the quality and accuracy of our period lights, they are chosen for municipal and historic restoration projects throughout the U.S. Consequently, they continue to light the streets & venues of cities and towns today, just as in Early America.
Outdoor Copper Post Lighting
Most importantly, when choosing size and quantity of Outdoor Copper Post Lighting, consider several factors. First of all, do not shy away from size. A driveway or walkway pole light may appear undersized if not scaled properly to the setting. Therefore, the distance from the lantern to the building, as well as the building size are important. Furthermore, on a long driveway multiple outdoor fixtures may be necessary, for proper illumination as well as aesthetic value.
Copper Outdoor Colonial Wall & Hanging Lights
Because a uniform appearance is visually pleasing, we make a wide variety of matching classic Copper Outdoor Colonial Wall & Hanging Lights. No matter which you choose, you’ll love how they look with your handcrafted post lantern! As a result of our attention to detail and quality craftsmanship, it guarantees a high end quality light. Therefore, our Early American home wall or hanging fixtures will illuminate any doorway to your antique home for generations. As always, we handcraft each of our traditional reproduction wall & Colonial Hanging Lights in a choice of solid copper or brass.
Colonial Post Lantern — Boston Street Light Designer
Boston Street Light Designer Jonathan Biggs created the original Colonial Boston Post Lantern. Probably one of the most iconic enduring designs among antique style lights, this imposing fixture has since become a classic for street illumination. Most notably, hundreds of Boston Post Lights are still seen today throughout the streets of its historic namesake city. Above all, the attractive and durable design of our reproduction Boston Street Light combines the best features among all the lanterns of this period. In addition, the steel cradle support ensures strength and stability. This aids in protecting these stately classic fixtures against the elements of Mother Nature.
