Who knew an 1880’s Railcar Chandelier would fit so well?

By Madison Kirkman - May 26, 2023 -

A Customer ordered one of our Railroad Car Chandeliers… but for the first time, Not for a Railcar, but instead his Kitchen! He ordered a dual Oil/Electric Set up, so that he can use the lamp causally for kitchen light but so the lamp is also authentic and not just a facsimile. The Nickel Plated Finish was the obvious choice for the setting, and we think it looks GREAT!
