Cottage styling, 1920s, Original Onion Glass . Great styling and detailing on this larger sized antique porch light lamp, from the 20s. Amazing that it still retains it's original onion glass shade along with the original bottom ring on the glass. Vintage shade is in excellent condition with no noticeable chips or cracks. Fixture embellished with Fleur de Lis and cast with a hammered looking finish. This antique lighting fixture goes with so many of the romantic era style homes (1920s) Bungalow, Storybook, Tudor, Cottage, Spanish Revival, and it would be a welcome sight on the Craftsman and Arts & Crafts homes as well. Fun and whimsical yet solid. Made of cast aluminum and refinished in an oil rubbed bronze color. At 13 3/4 inches high it is a commanding presence on any entryway. Backplate width is 5 1/2 inches Overall width is 7 inches Projection is 8 1/4 inches

Door detail of the cottage playhouse I'm making for my 2 year old daughter. I hand rasped the wood to give it a natural and weathered look. Eventually, iron hardware, wood stain, and faux plaster will be added.
