H. J. Nick incorporated the strong, robust lines of Early European works into an original, heirloom quality iron sconce.
Using design elements from the middle ages and Eastern European castles, this iron lantern is a solid, hand forged piece of original artwork. The forged lanterns hang from a 1/2-inch square iron spiral. The lanterns feature 1/4-inch thick hand blown seeded glass and 1/4-inch square iron frames, decorated with custom iron clavos in a pyramid style. All iron is finished with a patina, where we apply iron oxides at over 1000 degrees to create permanent color that will never fade, chip or crack - and actually beautifies with age. The entire wrought iron lantern sconce is supported by a decorative iron base wall attachment. UL listed.

Gothic Iron Lantern - Historical Origin And Design Inspiration
Cockermouth Castle is in the town of Cockermouth in Cumbria on a site by the junction of the Rivers Cocker and Derwent. The first castle on this site was built by the Normans in 1134. Significant additions were made in the 13th and 14th centuries. The castle played a significant role in the Wars of the Roses, and in the Civil War, when it was badly damaged.
