A solid brass replica Watchman's lantern pendant light dating from 1850 to 1910. This lantern is from our Heritage Lighting Collection which includes a selection of lighting that would originally have been used on board ships, trains and in factories. These lights were designed to be robust and practical so they could withstand the harsh conditions they would have been subjected to. Lanterns like the one featured here would originally have been carried by watchmen who were town officials who patrolled and guarded the Victorian and Edwardian streets, factories and railways after dark. This lantern hangs on a link chain and is hand crafted in sold brass with a light antique finish which will mellow with age much as the original lantern would have done. The attention to the authentic details is what makes these lights stand apart from inferior reproductions. Great lighting for entrance hallways of Victorian homes and for using in traditional pubs. Suitable for use outdoors in covered areas.
We are able to offer this traditional ceiling pendant in a choice of other finishes and with longer length link chain for lighting high ceilings - please contact us for details.
NB: Please be aware this is a handmade item and as such will have varying finishes, soldering and tarnish marks are part of the characteristics replicated to give an authentic appearance. The colour of the metal will mellow or darken and the finish becomes a little more even and a rich lustre develops as time goes on. Antique dealers refer to this ageing as 'patina' we believe this enhances the finish and feel sure you'll agree. This is one thing that does age beautifully.
