New Haven, CT - The restoration of 188 historic gothic-style pendant lighting fixtures from Yellowstone National Park's Old Faithful Lodge is nearing the final stages of completion.
The fixtures are currently in final assembly, where they will be wired, and tested in compliance with UL testing procedures. A total of 1184 panels of medium amber colored, Wissmack-type glass with a dew drop pattern coated in a 3M SCLARL #150 safety film will be installed in fixture's frames. The historic fixtures will then be packaged and crated for the journey back to the lodge for delivery early April.
New Haven, CT - The restoration of ten lighting fixtures from the Bodie Island Lighthouse has begun. Built in 1872 on the isolated Body's Island of North Carolina's Cape Hatteras National Seashore, The Bodie Island Lighthouse is one of the most classic settings of American light stations. The structure has a significant history; having been destroyed and rebuilt twice, once by retreating Confederate troops in 1861 who feared the lighthouse could be used as a Union observation post during the Civil War.
