Twelve years ago, I was asked to repair a street lamp that had been attached to a Philadelphia townhouse. It had been made around 1750. The original, however, was too badly deteriorated to repair cheaply. The owner decided that he didn't want to spend the money to repair the original and left it in my shop. I duplicated the original in copper, using the methods such as solder-irons and hand-rivets that were used in the early 1700's. The cast-iron yoke under the lantern is from the 1750 original. I have added a wrought-iron stand for display purposes. POT ON THE WALLThis piece is made of copper leaves silver-soldered onto brass stems with a chemical patina added.
