Handcrafted Exterior Lighting
.Especially relevant when choosing size and quantity of traditional post lanterns, consider these factors. Do not shy away from size, as a driveway or walkway post light may appear undersized if not scaled properly to the setting. Therefore the distance from the post mount to the building, as well as the building size determines appropriate lantern size. On a long driveway, multiple outdoor post top lanterns may be necessary, for proper illumination as well as aesthetic value.
In conclusion we construct each Colonial home reproduction post fixture from Hammerworks in your choice of material. We fold, bend, cut and solder completely by hand to produce an heirloom quality post lamp. The hand rubbed antique copper and brass finish gives the light fixture an attractive satin patina, allowing it to oxidize naturally over time. If you prefer, we can apply a Verdigris Copper finish giving your post lighting a more rustic weathered look.
