Oil Rubbed Bronze Picture Lights

For traditional homes the Oil Rubbed Bronze Picture Light finish is hand finished using an oxidizing process to transform the brass into a deeply darkened rich color that is very close to black but with a subtle metallic grey overtone. Each oil rubbed bronze picture light is protected with a finish coat of matte lacquer.

HP16-91 HP16-91 The Hyde Park style in 16” size for $140; this 16” traditional shade houses two bulbs for a total of 80 watts incandescent light. The shade extends outward 12” from the wall on a graceful swan’s neck with the austere elegance of an Oil Rubbed Bronze Picture Light.

The subdued elegance of the darker finishes such as Oil Rubbed Bronze, and also the dark painted finish known as Mahogany Bronze, contributes to the understated tone of most traditional home finishes like darkly stained woods, older portraiture and leaded windows.

T14-81 T14-81 - If you want a very traditional lamp for framed artwork that plugs in behind your artwork, consider the T style. Choose a lamp approximately ½ to 2/3 the width the painting. For example, a 22” wide painting would do very well with a Mahogany Bronze Picture Light such as the T14-81 or have it special ordered in the Oil Rubbed Bronze finish (call our customer service department to make a special order 800-792-4457).

DT8-91 DT8-81 If you want your art lighting to be hard wired, may I suggest the DT8-91 for smaller artwork for paintings between 13” and 16” wide. Direct wired 8” shade finished in Mahogany Bronze, but, as with any of the House of Troy domestically produced models, you can special order it in Oil Rubbed Bronze through our customer service department.

Yet the surprisingly high tech qualities of a modern lamp can be found in the traditional forms and tones of older lamps.

TLED36-81 So for example the TLED36-81 provides state of the art LED technology housed in a substantial traditional style shade finished in the dark painted mahogany bronze. If you wanted it in the #91 finish, it could be custom ordered as oil rubbed bronze, just another benefit of working with a Vermont based manufacturer like House of Troy.

BTLED24-91 BTLED24-91 Even the BTLED style - the Battery Traditional LED picture lights (surely from a certain perspective the oxymoron of traditional) - comes standard in the #91 finish - to wit, the BTLED24-91 which would be ideal in lighting any painting from 34” to 48” wide.
