This lighting fixture business was started in 1950 after several years of cabinet repair shop work for a high class antique shop. There a knowledge of and a feeling for good quality antiques was acquired. The feeling for finishes and shapes and construction methods of the old-time craftsman are followed and practiced in producing all of our lights. We send them out without apologies or excuses to anyone for the design or finish or the craftsmanship necessary to make a good fixture.
Authentic Designs Colonial Lighting
Authentic Designs makes reproductions of colonial and early American lighting fixtures. We began by researching the originals which we found in historic New England inns, museums and private collections, and now recreate them in perfect detail.
