Harvard University – Dunster House Exterior Lanterns Restoration

Project Info

Project Description

Grand Light restored twenty-eight original luminaries ranging from large chandeliers, wall sconces, pendant lights, and exterior lanterns.  These fixtures underwent several different restoration techniques ranging from cleaning and conservation of the existing finishes, to complete refinishing. All fixtures were rewired in accordance with UL standards. Of the historic luminaires requiring restoration, a majority were manufactured by the renowned Edward F. Caldwell & Company of New York City, the premier designer and manufacturer of electric light fixtures and decorative metalwork from the late 19th to the mid-20th centuries. In addition to the historic lighting fixture restoration, the project required a total of thirty custom lanterns to be manufactured based off the design of an existing historic exterior wall lantern.
