All our lamps are fabricated from solid brass, copper or terne coated copper; non-ferrous materials guaranteed not to rust. The wood parts are hand turned, and are made from Vermont Maple. Each fixture is cut, bent, shaped and turned by hand, using antique machinery and techniques, eliminating the artificial uniformity created by mass production techniques. Hand applied special and custom finishes, including pewter, gunmetal, verdigris, bronze, antiqued, polished and lacquered brass, terne coated copper as well as custom painted finishes are available. Electric lamps come with 6' cord with in-line rotary switch and polarized plug.
