Before. After.


My online vintage lighting store.


Found this online. Kinda sad, right? Kinda…boring, too. Kinda bent. And missing its shades. But…


…ZOUNDS! I recognized the fixture as being from Gill Glass, and from their Melrose line. I also had 5 Melrose shades in storage!


The distinctive original blue had been repainted black. Oh, the horror. The chrome polished up well.

    Ross, you are performing a tour de force in restoring an 1894 house, but much of your heart is given to “moderne” lighting. I admire it too, particularly the choice examples you curate, restore, and offer to connoisseurs. My grandfather, seeking to project modernity in postwar West Virginia, built a grand example of moderne architecture:

    Out of the family now, but still standing proud.

      Your grandfather’s design looks very solid, John. He even had the family name placed as a feature. A landmark in West Virginia?

      Lovely lighting, Ross.
