The Putnam collection features hand-spun, concave shades with rolled rims; vintage, keyless sockets; and our historically authentic, burnished bronze finish. The underside of each shade is finished in white to reflect the light, just as it was in 1885-1910 when the metal, cone shade was originally designed and put into use.
In contrast to most oil rubbed bronze painted finish all our Burnished Bronze finishes begin with brass plating followed by a series of aging baths. After each aging bath our fixtures are hand rubbed to eventually create a true aged bronze finish. The depth of our finish can't be duplicated by simply painting metal.
