Early Arts & Crafts bungalow porch light by the Lincoln Lighting Company. This type of fixture was produced from 1915 through the early 1930s. Picture 5 is taken from the 1927 Lincoln Lighting Co. trade catalog. This piece comes from an early 1920s bungalow in North Berkeley, California.

DESCRIPTION: This piece is constructed of thick stamped metal. It stands approximately 7 inches tall and is 6 inches square. It has been painted with a deep brown enamel paint (quite some time ago by the look of it). It has 4 panes of perfectly preserved rippled amber glass which gives it a very warm and comfortable feel when lit. I have rewired the piece including a new porcelain ring-type socket and 14-gauge electrical wires (but please note: I am not a licensed electrician, just a hobbyist). This light is made to fit directly to an electrical box so that the top fits snugly against the ceiling. The item does not include the light bulb. a 40 watt incandescent (or a compact florescent) bulb is recommended.

The pictures provide a good view of the fixture. If you have any other questions, please ask. I will be happy to help you!

ABOUT THE LINCOLN LIGHTING COMPANY: I believe that this company represented the best ideals of the American Arts & Crafts movement among larger furniture manufacturers. The foreword from their catalog says it best:

"It is with a good deal of pardonable pride that we herewith present to the trade our latest catalogue.

Pride because every year it has taken a finer catalogue to keep the pace with finer Lincoln fixtures; pride because we know that no business can thrive as this has that does not render a real service in the world.

It is a great thing for any man or business to have a real place in affairs.

Lincoln chose its place long ago. . . . . .There were already fine fixtures being made. . . . . .and there were cheaper ones. . . . . .for those who could not afford the fine. . . . . .Lincoln tackled the job of making fine fixtures for those who could NOT afford them but who wanted them just as greatly, nevertheless.

The story of Lincoln success in making quality lighting fixtures available to the home in Main street as well as to the house "on the hill" is a story for the annals of business romance.

The main purpose of this catalogue is to present as adequately as is possible through the medium of inks and paper a comprehensive mental picture of our wares. . . . . .Naturally not every piece in every line has been shown. . . . . .and new lines are being developed even while this catalogue is on the press.

In the main, however, it is as comprehensive as possible. We hope it will prove an attractive "show window" for those who cannot inspect our lines in person."

SHIPPING: Item will ship with new packing material via USPS and will be insured for the value of the piece. Shipping is limited to the United States only (lower 48 states). If the shipping cost is more than $2.00 below the listed shipping price the difference will be remitted through PayPal (I'm not looking to make money in handling fees).

Thank you for visiting my store and considering this piece. I have other lighting fixtures and will place them here as I finish cleaning and rewiring them.
