The Arts and Crafts Period (roughly 1860-1930) was an era defined by handmade, well-crafted products for the home. Rather than manufacture products using mass-produced methods, artisans of the period focused on the beauty and simplicity of the handcrafted. Nowhere was this more apparent than the handcrafted light fixtures of the era.

Crafted circa 1910, this antique demonstrates the finest artisan work of the era.
