Before. After.

The poor dear. A circa-1905 2-arm pendant. I would have passed it up…but there were two more! A rare set of three!

 

After. It is hard to believe it is the same fixture!

    Just beautiful! It’s amazing what you can do with something most people would trash.

    Perfectly lovely! The patina is beautiful; it’s great to see something sensitively restored with a restrained hand rather than having the #@&% polished out of it to make it look gleaming and “new”.

    That looks great! I also agree that it looks so much better with an aged patina, rather than polished to shiny golden brass.

    And lastly, I’m still baffled at why people paint light fixtures. Then again, it’s popular now, but at least it’s usually with throwaway brass-and-glass fixtures from 20 or 30 years ago:

    Afraid I’m not in love with the shades but, that is a handsome bronze finish. I adore the simplicity of the wide fluting and the tiny bead detail 💜 Yowza!

    Wow! Yippee yi kay-ay!!

    Amazing transformation & resurrection!!

    I am going to review your current inventory if lovelies!!

    When I purchase my next house–I want to adorn it with my favorites from your collection!!

    Just so you know, I plan to do so next year😇

    Won’t help you in the short term, but an assurance of future business & longevity!

    If cash flow is sticky, I will send a donation toward south facade. It has resulted in an extensive, expensive extension of what was projected.

    I am thankful I am able to be well funded and taken care of by my employer. I feel very grateful and thankful and send support to those less fortunate via churches (3 cities) & United Way–women united in my community.
