Vintage Outdoor Lighting Victorian Mediterranean by Troy Lighting
My heart flutters when I find vintage outdoor lights but not for reasons you might think. Usually Victorian vintage lighting seems to neglect the Mediterranean home decor preferences of men. Not this collection!
Troy Outdoor Lighting’s Potter family Victorian outdoor lighting hints of the dynamic second English Renaissance! How can I tell? When you study the quiet design of the Potter Victorian post light, you’ll see that it takes an energy efficient light, fluorescent bulbs. The Victorian Great Exhibition in 1851 boasted technological advances and industrial machinery of the time. This energy saver follows that innovative tradition. Men rejoice!
This is my favorite masculine Mediterranean Victorian family of lights. Some call the Victorian era the beginning of modern times! In other words, Victorian design is not just for lace-loving women. Men can select Victorian outdoor lighting too! Let me explain. Though the scroll accents of this Victorian Mediterranean wall lighting may signal prudishness to contemporary viewers, this period was the start of radical ideas in science and politics. Murmurs of feminism were beginning in England and America even as women wore uncomfortable corsets.
See the Mediterranean decor of Troy Lighting’s Potter hanging wall light and you’ll observe a dignified lighting fixture. Notice that the whole Potter family of lights, not just the 11”wide and 33 ¼” high wall lights, features both gothic and medieval overtones. Did you know that this light is hand-forged in the fired iron finish of Victorian style? You don’t need to graduate from an exclusive private school such as Eton or Harrow to know that this vintage outdoor lighting alludes to the time period of Lewis Carroll, Oscar Wilde, Karl Marx and Charles Darwin. Add Sigmund Freud to the mix and you’ll see that though the Mediterranean outdoor lighting of the time was graceful, the period was full of exciting events and ideas!
Purchase the Potter family of outdoor lights with incandescent lights for its attractiveness or fluorescent energy saving features. The wall light is convertible. You can choose long tail or short tail. Amber mist glass glows from the fluorescent model and seeded glass protects the incandescent light. Sit under these lights on a warm evening and study the rise of the Victorian middle class and upheaval of aristocracy by the newly moneyed commercial merchants. A classic work of literature such as Alice Through the Looking Glass will expand your mind too.
You’ll be refreshed to learn that the Victorian era was not a closed-minded time in history. I also hope you are convinced that Victorian decor is for dudes too! You’ll have a rich reminder of history to light your way home because of Troy Lighting.
