Grand Light was selected by All-Brite Electric, Inc and Standard Builders for the restoration of the Yale University's Sterling Memorial Library Manuscripts & Archives historic interior lighting fixtures. This project included the removal and pickup of almost 50 large bronze pendant lights and ceiling mounts, and over 200 glass shades.
Grand Light's restoration specialists recently restored a historic crystal chandelier from Wadsworth Atheneum's Goodwin Parlor. On-site specialists diligently undressed all crystal strands and disassembled all components for transportation to the Grand Light's lighting restoration and custom lighting manufacturing facility.
Grand Light continues to prepare the surface of each component by cleaning, preparing, and media blasting in anticipation of base finish application. During this time, elements are inspected to assure all details are crisp. Each component is then heated before a patina is applied. The chasings are then hand burnished to create a custom iridescent finish.
