Lantern Restoration

This is one of Richard Potter's grandfather's light fixtures which Henry Potter made in the 20's for a residence in Lakewood, Dallas.  From the looks of it, the fixture was probably painted white in the 60's and left to fight the elements since then.  The current owner of the home wanted to save the adorable little pendant, and so she brought it to us asking if we can help.  Although badly rusted, the fixture was in a good enough condition for us to simply de-rust, prime, and put a brand new coat of paint on.  The little patient is all better now and ready to warmly welcome the next generation home.
