Original finish and patina. A very well preserved specimen from the Arts & Crafts era. Well suited for a Bungalow or Craftsman porch. The finish looks to be original as we did nothing to it except a light cleaning and wax to help preserve it for another 80 years.
We do not see many porch lights in their original pewter color, which is somewhat surprising because this color will compliment almost any color in its vicinity.

*When deciding on purchasing any vintage fixture with glass or shades online you should always request to see an image of the fixture with the lights on. What dealers know and won't tell you is that many defects in the glass show up only when the shades are lit. Dealers should also not be afraid to show larger images of the fixture, where defects and poor workmanship would show up. They say a picture is worth a thousand word., how true. When deciding on any vintage fixture always look at the care and time taken to present fixture images. Are ceiling fixtures hanging relatively straight? Are wall fixtures shown mounted on a vertical surface (how you will see them in your home) or simply laying flat on the floor? These are a few good indications of the overall care and time taken in the restoration of any fixture. You deserve the best!
