Twelve 7'‘ by 12” lanterns on this oversized Arts & Crafts (1910) chandelier will provide beautiful illumination for any large space. The fixture has a gorgeous, rich patina. A matching pair make these even more of an statement of pure Arts & Crafts lighting.

These light fixtures came from John Harris Hearding Grammar and High School in Aurora, Minnesota. The school was named after the superintendent of the Adams Mine in the Mesabi iron range, and he was also an active member of Duluth school boards and other local businesses. 

The school was designed by another Duluth native, Anthony W. Puck of Puck and Holstead. It was built in 1911 in the English Renaissance style.

“The Hearding High School building contains a spectacular auditorium space featuring a full stage, leaded glass windows, a beamed oak ceiling, and bronze chandeliers.” (Minnesota History Interpreter, April 1998)

Fast forward to the ‘90s, and the school was in danger of being torn down. As incentive to purchase the buildings, the school district was willing to sell the two buildings to a qualifying developer for $1. Because the buildings were in the National Register of Historic Places, they were eligible for federal rehabilitation tax credits. Sadly, this wasn’t enough for someone to purchase the school. The building was demolished in 2001, but luckily these lights were saved.

We find that early antique lighting was designed as objects of art and we treat each fixture with careful attention to preserve original beauty. Our fixtures are cleaned, rewired, and restored & are ready to hang, following UL standards. We can work with you on code requirements.
