Description from Scofield Historic Lighting
Salem Lantern from Scofield Historic Lighting
Hold a Scofield lantern in your hands, and the elegant gravity of its authentic materials is immediately apparent. Each part of a Scofield lantern is finely-designed, then meticulously constructed by hand. A pleasing, creative unpredictability arises out of the materials — in the different thicknesses in metal due to hand-forming or the slight distortions and occasional bubbles found in our handmade glass, which are made the same way they were centuries ago.
Scofield’s unparalleled finishes, from shiny raw copper, to bronzed, to our most popular green oxidized copper patina, reflect the different stages in a lantern’s age, from new to old. Our ability to emulate 300 years of wear gives your lantern an authentic, fully-aged appearance that makes a Scofield lantern indistinguishable from the original. Scofield delivers top design, function, and structural strength in all its products. Like a fine keepsake jewel passed from generation to generation, a Scofield lantern will be there for another 300 years.
Lanterns range in price from $475 to $3500.
Salem Lantern pictured is $1204 and available in natural copper, oxidized copper, bronzed copper or leaded copper finishes; for interiors it is available in an aged tin finish.
