Antique Appeal

Enhance the mood of any room with an Old World-inspired lighting option that will work well with your style. Start small with a functional accent such as Gold Pineapple Lamp, a punched-tin accent featuring a pineapple motif shade. Pineapples are known throughout history to by symbols of hospitality, and this still holds true today. Scrolling features accent a wooden base on the Bookend Lamp, perfect for dual purpose lighting in any room, especially a home office or home library.

Onion Lantern Night Light Colonial Inspiration

Add a touch of the Colonial era to your home with a lighting fixture that exudes plenty of early American charm. Enhance a dim workspace or illuminate your nighstand with a reproduction lamp that speaks to your particular style. The Onion Lantern Night Light does just that, with its iron top and bottom, charming star cutouts and beautiful bubble glass. The historical onion design — including a handle and candelabra bulb — is perfect for creating a Colonial look with modern functionality.


Sturbridge Classics

A primitive staple in our catalog, the Colonial-inspired Lantern Lamp, available in four rustic country colors, features a metal base with a hinged door for a touch of Old World charm. Use the small candle-inspired light below for mood lighting or as a night light, and illuminate your country home with the main light, housed beneath a soft white shade. Use just one Lantern Lamp or start a collection and create a new look in your living room or bedroom.

Light the Way With Filament Bulbs

The finishing touch for our Old World collection is our early American Edison-era light bulb, available in several styles. Crafted to replicate historical early light bulb designs made from blown glass, these bulbs showcase the glow of the encased filaments and offer warm mood lighting with an amber hue. These bulbs may look old fashioned, but they are just as convenient and long lasting as modern options. Available as shown in LongStandard and as a Candelabra Bulb
