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
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!
