Antique Appeal

Enhance the mood of any room with an old world inspired lighting option that will work well with your style.

Add a touch of Colonial charm 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 Black Onion Lantern 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. Our Electric Lantern Lamp mimics the beautiful design of primitive oil lamps, but with the convenience of a modern lighting solution.
