New Haven Courthouse Exterior Front Entry Lanterns Restoration

Project Info

Project Description

Grand Light was selected to restore the massive front entry lanterns to their original glory. These massive cast bronze fixtures are 65″ tall and 30″ wide and are estimated to weigh 400 pounds each when fully assembled. The restoration of these fixtures included mechanical repairs, rewiring, and refinishing of all the fixture components. Grand Light created a special recipe to replicate the original red rust hot patina finish. This original finish was also discovered after removal of the black paint not only on the lanterns, but the on large entry way doors and arches as well.
