Iron Lantern Chandelier
Designed by the customer and hand built by our master craftsmen, this custom light fixture is a completely original piece of artwork.
Lantern Runner Chandelier – As shown – Color: P-510S Patina Brown – Solid Iron – features hand forged iron, patina finish, artisan hand etched glass, and decorative ceiling canopy. UL listed.
This three light custom chandelier combines country French curves, solid English lanterns and mountain wilderness accents to create an entirely unique, custom design pendant lighting. Surrounded by a frame of hand hammered iron, the glass panes have been etched with frost-white wilderness silhouettes. Each lantern-style light hands freely from the central chandelier support, and is fitted with a standard, candelabra style light bulb. All iron on this custom chandelier light is finished with a patina, where we hand brush oxides onto the raw material, curing them at over 1000 degrees creating a color that is a permanent part of the metal. A patina will never fade, chip, or crack, and will actually improve with age. The lanterns seen here are also available as pendant lights (LP105), or the same design can be applied to a wall sconce.

Custom Chandeliers – Historical Origin and Design Inspiration
The Château de Tonquédec is a castle in Brittany, France, and one of the most visited monuments in the d?partement of the Côtes d’Armor. One of the most impressive French medieval sites, this château-fort, stands in a pleasant green forested countryside about 8.5 km (5.3 mi) south of Lannion. The present castle was built in the 15th century, on the site of an earlier 12th-century castle. From the height of a rocky cliff, the castle ruins, with its eleven towers and a closed curtain wall, dominates the valley of the Léguer. It is a genuine vestige of feudal Brittany.
The 12th-century castle was the work of the Coëtmen-Penthièvre family. It was partially dismantled by order of Jean IV, Duke of Brittany, in 1395 because of a conflict between him and the Penthi?vres. Indeed, Rolland II and Rolland III of Coëtmen, Viscounts of Tonquédec, had allied themselves to the rebellion of Olivier de Clisson. Reconstruction began in 1406 by Rolland IV of Coetmen. The castle subsequently changed owners several times, before becoming an artillery base in 1577. At this time, the owning family (Goyon de La Moussaye), being Protestant, was therefore in disagreement with the king, Henri IV. During the War of the League, the castle was a hiding place for Huguenots. It was finally dismantled around 1622 on the orders of the powerful Cardinal Richelieu. The castle currently belongs to descendants of the original builders (House of Coëtmen-Penthièvre): Count and Countess Bertrand de Rougé. Since 1862, it has been listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.
