Grand Light Begins Second Phase of Restoration from Historic West Hartford Home

New Haven, CT – Grand Light has completed the restoration of thirty three historic lighting fixtures from a private residence in West Hartford, Connecticut. After completing the first phase of restoration, Grand Light has begun the second phase of restoring two more lighting fixtures from this residence.

Pictured below are samples of a billiard light and post lantern that will undergo complete restoration, as well as modifications.  Both fixtures will be stripped of their original finish, buffed and refinished. Original components of the billiard light are being repaired and refinished to an antique brass finish. The shades will be repainted green with a high reflectance white interior.
