Judy N. called, reporting that her house was hit by lightning in Door County (WI) last night and her 12” European Country column mount lanterns were blown off of the column that they were mounted on, rolled down a small hill and only some of the glass panels were broken…she said “ not only are they stunning, but there are sturdy as well”. ~ June 2011

“I purchased a few of your light fixtures this year and they look so good and fit in so well with the house that I am replacing all of the fixtures!" ~ Brian Henchey, Carrollton, TX October 2010

"I'm so excited I feel like I'm giving birth again!" ~ Ellen, Winnetka, Illinois June 2010. Upon delivery of her most appropriate Lancaster lanterns for her ca. 1921 residence.

"Jim and I are so thrilled with the ceiling fixtures! You promised a fast turn around with delivery early next week. They arrived yesterday well ahead of schedule and we're so pleased. Our only communication on the fixtures was by phone, but we felt confident that your professional recommendations would be ideal. Our intuition was correct! The workmanship was excellent and enhancement on the fixtures was perfection. The extensions are a perfect match and the shades are so simply elegant. Your suggestions for the fan bulbs and proper electrical installation were appreciated. We look forward to visiting your showroom in the future. Thank you!" ~ Sally and Jim Prideaux, Amherst, WI Nov 2010

"We enjoy our lights every day! We are still thrilled with all our lighting – it’s more than we could have dreamt." ~ Linda & Wm Kent, Glendale, Illinois

"Our first encounter with Brass Light Gallery was thirteen years ago. Our home was built in 1916 and we were attempting to restore it with lights of that era. Now, we're back for period lighting for our current circa 1926 home. Whether you work in person or long distance via their website and by phone it is nothing but a positive experience. The website is wonderful and their lights are of the highest quality!" ~ Gail Reedy, Tulsa, Oklahoma


"Want to spend a pleasant day? Go up to Brass Light Gallery - they have a great product". ~ Dori Collins, Batavia, IL July 2010

"I have renovated three homes and have found light fixtures to be the most challenging to find. I had heard about Brass Light Gallery and I made the trip to Milwaukee to visit their showroom. I am thankful I did. They have a vast array of fixtures - both new and old. Steve and Scott visited my house and recommended fixtures. They subsequently brought a variety of fixtures to me from which to choose. Scott has come to my house periodically with different fixtures for me to select. I have purchased both their new and vintage products. Their fixtures are interesting, beautiful, and of exceptional quality. I highly recommend Brass Light Gallery." ~ Lisa, Wilmette, Illinois
