Refined exterior wall lighting fixtures are a touchstone on any place that we visit. For me, it is the “front-liner” of the whole concept or design of the house as a whole. Victorian styles make quite an impression as lighting fixtures because of their elaborate detailing, which is also common in Mediterranean designs, and this light fits both. Whenever I see them, they bring to mind the celebrated romanticsm and elegance of a past era in society. The Victorian Era was a very exciting time wherein lots of change in cultural, scientific, technological and artistic advancement occured.
The Victorian Hartford 23 Inch Exterior Wall Lighting by Kalco (model 9232BB, found here: http://www.brilliantoutdoors.com/kal-9232bb.html) is perfect for those wanting to create a classic and indulgent outdoor ambiance. This one features slightly simpler Victorian styling that has a more comfortable and relaxed feel and Olde World design that makes it look authentic. It has a width of 11”, 23” for height, extension of 14.5” and a mounted height of 11” with burnished bronze frame and seeded glass. The 3x60W Candelabra Base adds a cozy touch.
