Traditional Colonial Post Lights
At Hammerworks our Outdoor Traditional Colonial Post Lights are Handmade in America. Most importantly we hand make each traditional style light meticulously with attention to detail and historical accuracy. Our process recalls the days when Colonial craftsmen took pride in their work. Thus each classic outdoor lantern we produce is made to last for years to come. We design our handcrafted Colonial lanterns to provide a glowing warmth. Yet the beauty of solid copper or brass lanterns also provide you with a dramatic accent in daytime. Colonial post & wall lanterns were the staple of outdoor illumination, lighting the streets of cities and towns throughout Early America. Due to the quality and accuracy of our Colonial outdoor lights, they are often chosen for municipal and historic restoration projects throughout the U.S.
Handcrafted Colonial Lighting – Post Lanterns
.Especially relevant when choosing size and quantity of traditional post lanterns, consider these factors: Do not shy away from size, as the light may appear undersized if not scaled properly to the setting. Therefore the distance from the post light to the building, as well as the building size itself determines appropriate lantern size. On a long driveway, multiple traditional post lanterns may be necessary, to achieve proper illumination as well as aesthetic value.
In conclusion we construct each Colonial reproduction post light from Hammerworks in your choice of material. We fold, bend, cut and solder completely by hand to produce a quality lighting fixture.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 lantern a more weathered look.
