Early 20th Century Courthouse Lights

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Salvaged from a new demolished court house in New England, these inverted pendant lights are beautiful pieces of Americana. The intricately carved solid walnut domes feature alternating panels of in-carved reeding juxtaposed with the United States seal. Handcrafted ca. 1910, these fixtures are exceptional and unique pieces. Each pendant is lit by a central fixture with four bulb sockets and hung on four brass chains connected to a central reeded brass pipe and ceiling cap.
