Vintage Hall Light

An early 20th Century lamp.

We managed a quick getaway to Fed-On Lights in Saugerties, NY while we were upstate over the holidays where we picked up a new light to replace the generically “period” lamp from Lowe’s I’d installed shortly after we moved in. Installation was complicated by an unusually sized base and an adapter bar that didn’t fit the base. A little modification of the bar and some angled screws and I was able to get it in using my basic electrical kit.

We keep buying lamps and fixtures before I can build some, but some day I’d like to take a crack using the plans in John D. Adams’ How to Make Mission Style Lamps and Shades and Wood Magazine’s Arts and Crafts Furniture as a starting point.
