Our Reproduction Billiard Lamp
This lamp is patterned after an old original. It is custom made for us one at a time in a local lamp shop. The metal shades are also hand- made by a “tin knocker”, and then custom painted by us. Metal shades were traditionally white inside to reflect light down, and green outside, but we can paint them other colors at your direction. Cased glass shades are also available in green, white, and butterscotch. These too are white inside.
Lamps can be made for a nine or either size of eight foot table. The stem is cut to accommodate your ceiling height. An internal steel skeleton allows for the traditional slender design. Many small touches like the use of old style switches, chemically aged patina, and the use of cloth wire where visible give this lamp a completely authentic feeling.

Lamps are made to order, so call for lead time
We started making our faithful reproduction lamp because actual antique lamps are so scarce and hard to come by. Compared with the tables themselves, the lamps were far more fragile and disposable and fell victim to “modernization".
Occasionally we do come by old original lamps and below is what we have at the time of this writing.
