Portfolio: Pier Lantern for Historic Neighborhood Entrance Signs


Marking an entrance to the Washington Highlands, an architecturally significant Wauwatosa, Wisconsin suburb on the National Register of Historic Places, are two charming stone walls with cast bronze signage and solid brass pier mounted lanterns made by Brass Light Gallery.

The Washington Highlands is one of the most architecturally significant neighborhoods in Milwaukee County. Designed in 1916 by renowned city planner Dr. Werner Hegemann, the 133 acre subdivision is filled with 14 different eclectic Revival architectural styles as well as Craftsman and Prairie style period homes and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Tree lined streets, private parks, and a winding creek provide a beautiful natural setting for the exceptional residential neighborhood. Marking the entrances to the Washington Highlands are recently erected stone walls and columns with signage and lighting. The handsome markers went through an architectural review with the Washington Highlands board to ensure high quality and relevant aesthetic. Brass Light Gallery pier mounted French Country Lanterns were specified for each marker to provide elegant illumination with a durable, architecturally appropriate style.

I have an older fixture no longer produced by Brass Light Gallery. Angie and the team were extremely helpful in identifying and producing the replacement (lost) parts to get my fixture up and functioning again. They did this all remotely and shipped the parts promptly. Highly recommend!

Brass Light Gallery is such an amazing resource: they can build your lighting dream. Angela in the sales room was just the best: listened carefully to what we were trying to accomplish and guided us through the process. She was a delight to work with and she persisted until she found EXACTLY what we were looking for: three sconces to match my Brass Light Gallery pendants from 20 years ago! We are so pleased!

Always a fantastic experience with Brass Light Gallery. Their customer service goes above and beyond and their products are of the highest quality. It is great to support true artisans that create timeless and beautiful light fixtures that are made to last multiple generations. While certainly on the high end price-wise, their fixtures are well worth the investment.

AMAZING!!! Breathtaking! Simply beautiful!! We are beyond impressed with the quality of these lovely fixtures and beyond impressed with the sales help from Janel. Janel was outstanding to work with! She took the time to understand that we wanted to modernize our 25 year old home with updated lighting. She asked about style, dimensions, pictures and layout information and helped us pick out coordinated fixtures for all rooms. Honest, very helpful but no pressure felt. We ordered 14 beautifully modern fixtures for the main level of our home. We live in MN and the lights came very well packaged and cared for. Our local electrician found installation easy and intuitive and commented many times on how high quality these fixtures were. "very well made, very very nice"!!! Am already planning the next lights we would like to update. We will definitely be ordering from brass light gallery again. HIGHLY recommend using this amazing company! Thank you Janel!!
