I worked with Light Power for over 2 decades, while meticulously restoring 2 Victorian brownstones in Boston’s South End. Both properties were featured in magazine articles and TV-productions. I purchased countless pieces from Tom and never, ever had a problem. His prices are fair, his merchandise the highest quality, and he’s a nice guy to work with. I can’t speak more highly of him, his products and services. Tom has my contact information and has my permission to pass it onto you, should there be any questions you’d like answered. While you don’t know me, trust me, you can’t go wrong purchasing a Light Power product.

Want to give credit where credit is due… Years ago my wife and I fell in love with an antique salad bowl light fixture and we bought it. But we had no idea how to suspend it. Well, I would like to recommend Tom Powers at Genuine Antique Lighting in Boston. He knew exactly what to do, his craftsmanship is superb, and his rates are very reasonable. This was our Christmas present to ourselves. Thanks, Tom! (It does work, but if I turn it on it distorts the photo quality and you can’t actually see the fixture very well. Guess you will have to come for a visit to see it in its full glory. 🙂
“Found your site a few years after buying an old townhouse (1865) in Troy NY. Many old fixtures remained and we used your site as an elegant reference for additional lighting we would like to install if the stars were aligned. Historical information you often provide in the catalog hints to a very welcoming shop. One day.”
I wanted to tell you how happy I am with the light fixture I recently purchased. I would not be surprised if you occasionally get push back because of your prices. Last time my wife and I had to purchase a light fixture, there was the normal rush because we had a contractor on hand. We went to one of the larger stores in the greater Boston area, and purchased a new light fixture – one appropriate for our older home. It is nice, but it cost twice as much as the fixture you sold me to light our entry coat room, which is open to our Kitchen. The fixture is classy and perfect.
Item I purchased: (1714f) Small Amber 3-Chain Flush Fixture
Tom Powers, the proprietor, provided perfect service: he spent time showing us his inventory at his store in Boston; he then came to our house multiple times with lighting that he thought would be suitable; and my wife and I purchased many pieces that have transformed the look of our house. Tom has a great eye. Also, he doesn’t want to sell pieces that are not appropriate to their setting–there’s no pressure from him to buy; he only wants to please. I recommend him with true enthusiasm.
Items I purchased: (2016d)Art Nouveau Leaded Glass Inverted Dome, (3206d)6 Panel Leaded Glass Cream Colored Dome Pendant, (3011e)Arts and Crafts Chandelier with Slag Glass Shades, (2810s)Set of 4 Beaded Design Leaded Glass Sconces
Now that the holiday rush is over, I wanted to write and tell you how much I love the pair of sconce fixtures I purchased from you recently. They look awesome – even more handsome in person, and will make a wonderful addition to my new home. I particularly appreciate that you replaced all the wiring which will make installation easy and worry-free. Finally, thank you for the attention given to your superb packaging, as they arrived in perfect condition. I’ll be excited to send you a picture once they are installed on the wall.
Thanks again, Tom. Purchasing an expensive item over the internet can be uncertain but you described everything accurately and made it a pleasure.
Item I purchased: (2096s)Pair of Egyptian Revival Silver Plated 3-light Candle Sconces
Received the Vaseline glass light and had it put up yesterday. We absolutely love it!! It looks wonderful. Thank you for your prompt delivery.
Items I purchased: (2004d)Vaseline Leaded Glass Inverted Dome
Thank you again for helping me to narrow in on some beautiful lights – you certainly are very knowledgeable! We have moved to Minnesota and the 3 lights I bought from you arrived safe and sound – thank you for the excellent packaging job. They are all installed and look wonderful in the places in the study & hallway (inverted domes), and sun room (whimsical crystal pendant).
We hung the alabaster inverted dome today and it is breathtaking! I am in love with it. I looked at it all day and then went outside tonight to look at it from the street. Attached are some photos. I have a hard time taking photos of lights but I hope you get a feel for how good it looks. Take care
Item I purchased: (1278d)A Very Large Cream Alabaster Inverted Dome
It’s beautiful! Thank you. We’ll take care of it and enjoy it for many years to come. Thank you so much for finding it and fixing it up – we love it.

A Conversation with J.
My ceilings are on the low side approx 9′. This Chandelier (1832ge) would be going over my dining table. Just wondering how much can the drop be adjusted. I am thinking I only need a 12″ to 18″ drop. Is this possible and will it affect the current lamp structure ?
Thank you for your interest in our fixtures.
Actually if you came into my shop and looked at this fixture and asked me how low you would put this fixture over a Dining room table I would say 6 feet from the floor. That would be 36 inches long which is what it is right now.
Usually what you do is “establish location” and drop it down over the table. You are saying “We are meeting here at this table”. For a 9 foot ceiling, 6 feet from the floor is what I would recommend. You can still see the person opposite you, and when you are sitting, your eye level is lower so the fixture is doing it’s job lighting the table surface.
There are cases where the customer is going to move the table at times or the electrical box is not over the center of the table. In those cases we put it at a height where we are saying “we are lighting the whole room”. Then, I would recommend 7 feet from the floor on a 9 foot ceiling. That would be 24 inches long. You would want a decorative fixture like this in your field of vision.
I don’t think your ceilings are low. The ground floor on a Queen Anne Victorian is usually 9.5 feet. This probably originally hung in a Dining room of a Queen Anne Victorian.
Just to give you a frame of reference. The door frames in your house are probably 6 foot 8 inches. Just a little above that is where your fixtures should be if you are walking under them.
The answer to your original question: I can make it 18 inches and it would still work, not 12 inches.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
1832GE is a great fixture.
Best, Tom Powers
Thank you for your order. Will ship on Weds. the 20th. No problem shortening the fixture. You will have it on Thurs. We will send you the tracking number through UPS by email.
Have a great Weekend.
Chandelier arrived in great shape. Quick question is there a particular wattage I should use for the 2 different sockets?
That is great!
I would use 60 watt torpedo bulbs for the down lights and you might as well do the same for the up lights. The reason for the torpedo bulbs is that they will allow you to take the shades off over the bulb. I would use clear bulbs.
I hope this helps.
Looks great thanks for help.

A Conversation with L.
Good morning Tom,
I discovered your website this weekend. What a fantastic collection you have! The photo you see shows the entry of my 1917 Prairie Foursquare in Texas. The original Colonial Revival sconces remain, but I am looking for a suitable pendant for this space that will mix well with the scones and architectural details(pictured is a stand in for the 80’s chandelier that was there) Dimensions of the entry are approximately 21′ long x 16′ wide with a 10′ ceiling.
Your 24″ Arts and Crafts Bowl is a great size but is it the best stylistically? What else do you recommend?
Many thanks for your assistance.
Thank you for your photos. What a beautiful Foyer. I guess what I would say is if you want to continue with the kind of detail that you have used in the lighting and the Secretary you may want to go with something Classical or Neo-classical like item (788L-G)Cast Bronze Lantern w/ Rams Heads. Please click on (1992d)Large Arts & Crafts Leaded Glass Inverted Domes. if you want the Foyer to look less Classical. You have a great house with a lot of character but you could design either way. I think leaded glass would look good in that Foyer. It seems that what you have done is somewhat understated with a little detail topping it off. The leaded glass dome is definitely in the period. It is not so Arts and Crafts that it would conflict with what you have already done.
Thank you for your kind words about ” our” house(we consider ourselves guardians or stewards as much as owners). It has quite a history and is listed in the AIA’s guide to significant architecture in Tx ( we do have some, although not like Boston~~)
My thinking lines up with yours on the leaded glass fixture, your item 1992D. That was my first impulse, but I wanted your specialist advice.
Should I complete the purchase via your website?
Thank you so much for your advice.
Yes, I think the 1992d Arts and Crafts fixture will look really great in the Foyer. I think it will work very well with the existing details that you have. It does look like a really great house. I can understand your feeling about being Stewards of the property as well as owners.
You can go to the 1992d item page and click on the “purchase this antique” button. It will ask you for all the information we will need to safely get the fixture to you. I think the length is just right for a 10 foot ceiling. We are having a 25% off sale with free shipping so the form that you fill out when you buy the fixture will reflect that discount. It will be $3187.00 net.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you, Tom.
Thank you for your order.
We ship UPS Ground and we will email you with the tracking number of the package through UPS. We will ship on Friday the 15th. This package will be a 30″ cube box. The package will be double boxed. The interior box is a 24″ cube. The shade will be wrapped in 4 courses of heavy bubble wrap. The two boxes will be separated with three inches of peanuts on all sides. We have found that this is the safest way to ship a fixture like this one. Of course it will be insured to the full value. Our goal is to make sure that your fixture gets to you safely.
Hi Tom, the fixtures are up and look beautiful.

A Conversation with E. from above:
What kind of patina on your Holophane flush light? Could it possibly go with a dark antique pewter?
(1684f)Holophane Tear Drop Flush Fixture and (1687f)Signed ” Holophane ” Flush Fixture have the same finish. It is like the finish on the arts and crafts lantern you bought. It is a bronze patina. I know it can work with nickel and silver.
I think it could work with a dark antique pewter.
Good Morning, Tom
Is there any possibility that we could talk by phone today? I realize it’s Sunday, and I do apologize for asking. The issue is that I’m flying overseas at 4 p.m. AZ time for 10 days and it will be very difficult to place an order after my departure.
I’m hoping to obtain your suggestion on a gas harp or J with a 16″ max drop (those 8 foot ceilings strike again), as well as the Halo flush light. Also need to discuss a sconce for the hallway. Same project btw…..The lights are a huge hit…. Would need to have them delivered by the 12th…. I know….I’m a pain…Sorry!
No your not a pain. Call me any time today. No problem delivering them by the 12th.
Made it to Prague. Snowing!
Need to make it to meetings, but wanted to say how much I appreciate, once again, your professionalism, expertise, and helpfulness re the lighting. Thank you for sending so quickly..
Yes the fixtures arrived safely. Thank you. I am remodeling my library and plan to use them there. One of these days if I ever finish a project I hope to send some photos of my home. The lighting fixtures I purchased from you have really added to the unique look I was striving for.

The “new” light arrived in fine shape, expertly packed and protected. I am sending two emails to you, each with two photos of the installation. At least for now, I ended up using the original canopy (5″ x 1″)to have enough room for the wires.I have the one you sent me flat up against it, and it actually looks like a single, elegant canopy. I have the pendant illuminated by two 60-watt “ceiling fan” bulbs which provide enough light to illuminate the stairwell. It looks like a jewel, easily integrating with our eclectic interior. We both really love it. Thanks so much!
Item I purchased: (1457p)Organic Leaded Glass Pendant

It’s here! It’s gorgeous! We love it! Thank you so much,
Item I purchased: (773L)Six Sided Leaded Glass Gas Lantern
UPS delivered the light and sconces yesterday and all is fine. You did a world-class job at packing the lights. I was worried about how one could send that light from Boston to here without it getting damaged – but you did it !
We got the light up this morning and it looks like it has been there for a hundred years. It is perfect. Thanks for your help.
We’re working on another room ( library ) and will be looking for another light in a month or two. Be back in touch then.
We live in an 1890 Victorian three (3) story townhouse in VA that we have renovated over the last several years. I had looked for period lighting sources for some time and was very pleased to find the knowledgeable and friendly folks at Light Power. We could not have been happier with the dining room chandelier we purchased. In fact we were so pleased we went back and bought four wall sconces of the same vintage and which coordinated perfectly with the chandelier. Thomas was patient and offered great advice. Everyone is impressed with the quality and condition of these great fixtures.

Hi Tom- I’ve been meaning to email you since last week… my client loves the light fixture! It was the perfect fit for her custom closet. Thanks so much for shipping it a little later. The length ended up being just perfect the way you shipped it.
Item I purchased: (2213g) 2-Light Eastlake Gas Chandelier
Tom, Thank you so much for sending these beautiful fixtures. When we unpacked them a couple weeks or so ago we were surprised by the actual size of the glass shades, but immediately loved them the more. HOW PERFECT and smart they will look in our great new kitchen. I will send photos when the kitchen is completed in a year or so. It is a large residential remodeling and one which is very complicated, more so than most. I think you will like them more too when you see them fitted into the gracious new OLD New Orleans styled room. Smile
thanks you so much, love them wicked,
Item I purchased: (1769s) Cast Iron Art Deco Sconces
Tom, Just to let you know I’ve received the lights today! Picture does not do it justice – just absolutely love them. I’m contemplating now putting them up in the library as someone took the original ones. All I have are knob and tube wires hanging out of the plaster above the fireplace.

Item I purchased: (1551g) 3-Light Gas Chandelier w/Castings on Body
Thanks for such a tasteful holiday greeting..tho I think the snowman a bit too cutesy for the beauty of what follows.
The chandelier which I purchased from you in August… thanks to your great sale…is so absolutely perfect I sometimes find myself literally entranced by it. I continue to be appreciative of the guidance you gave me re shades and height.
I doubt that I’ll be looking for another period lighting fixture notwithstanding my plans to restore another old wreck but keep me on your mailing list nonetheless.
Items I purchased: (1567g)3-Light Gas Chandelier with Embossed Body
We absolutely love the new dome fixture! The proportions and detail are perfect for the entry. We also moved the smaller dome to it’s new location at the base of the stairs and it looks lovely in it’s new location.
We discovered when hanging the two, that because of the dimension difference, the smaller dome hangs lower, and we would like to shorten the length on it, rather than extend the larger dome. Since you can see both at the same time, we need to have the length as close as possible. If there must be a difference, the smaller dome should be higher/shorter.
We’re wondering if we should get shorter rods from you, send it to you to alter, take it somewhere locally..what would you recommend?
Thanks for your assistance, and for wonderful lights!
Items I purchased: (360D)Classical Inverted Dome, (1902d)Cast Glass Inverted Dome Chandelier with Swag & Fan Design

Items I purchased: (1640f)4-Light Sheffield Flush Chandelier w/ Embossed Frosted Shades (1554g)4 Light Transitional Art Nouveau Chandelier
Tom: Everything arrived in absolute excellent shape. You could take those boxes and drop them out of a 747 at 50,000′ and I don’t think the fixtures would be harmed. Your packing is superior. Also, I was surprised by the globe tassel! I am 1,000% ecstatic over … well beyond my expectations. Was thinking of some sort reproduction. Thanks a million. Now the fixtures: have not had the time to remove from the inner boxes. I did check the Steuben shades …beautiful. Otherwise. beautiful job on your website (fixture representation) and your kind New England (Boston) assistance/patience. When I get them out and in place, I’ll let you know and when my “project” is completed, I’ll send you some photos. Thanks much, PS…there will be more
hey there tom…
received the gas harp yesterday…just as you had promised.
first of all: the packing: that was the best and most secure packaging ive ever seen …and that is sayin alot as my parents live in seattle and tons of packages go back and forth and we are super anal about packaging stuff (to the point of craziness as j my husband thinks )
second of all: the lamp: HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!!! (sorry…but it is awesome!!!!) the shade is sooooo beautiful…the pictures you took were great…but in real life: just perfect!!!!!!
i cant wait to hang it!!! only thing is that the contractor raised the floor a bit more than i expected…so im hoping that the length at 24″ will clear my 6’5″ dad (he is the barometer for chandelier heights)…ill see how we fair when i go to hang it or i may have to shorten it just a hair.
meanwhile it is off limits in our living hall in the box just as you sent it…and no one but me gets to touch it…til it is safe up where no one will touch it 🙂
what a wonderful transaction we had with you….thanks, thanks, thanks!!

Hi Tom. I got the fixture, and it is beautiful! I haven’t yet had it installed, so I don’t know what it “really” looks like, but I think it’s going to add a lovely touch to my kitchen. Thank you again for all your help to make it work for me. I’m sure I’ll be shopping more with you as we go through the whole house. Cheers!

I just received the sconce from you. I love it, it is a wonderful piece and will be well taken care of and enjoyed. I also looked at the photo of the pair that you e-mailed to me. I guess I’m looking for a more decorative pair of sconces, than the pair you currently have. I will keep looking at your website, as I need a crystal chandelier for my back parlor and one for over a dining table. Thank you again,
Item I purchased : (1197s) Egyptian Revival Double Arm Sconce
Dear Tom– The fixtures we bought from you and your partner were installed last Thursday and they LOOK GREAT!!! I just saw them for the first time today. That silver Arts & Crafts chandelier was meant to be in the dining room of this 1906 shingle-style cottage. It looks perfect! You should see its golden Steuben shades with the pink and gold of the sunset over the Long Island Sound’s blue-grey waters behind it. Just fantastic. The sunset also shines through the wall sconces’ golden shades so they turned out really well too. We now have a knock-out dining room with a beautiful fixture backed by a spectacular view of the water. We installed the the oiled bronze fixture with the pulled-feather shades in the music room. It is also fabulous because its curvy design and colors are similar to the cottage’s original stained-glass window behind it. We shortened the stairway fixture a bit and it looks simple and unobtrusive and will be much easier to navigate for bulb changes than the prior new flush fixture. Thanks again for your help and for letting me know when your prior customer returned that silver fixture. I’m so glad she “knew” it was meant to be here in Sea Cliff in this old house!

Long Island, NY
We have a medieval revival home built in 1917 and we were trying to find authentic, antique lighting fixtures from the same time period. We needed two fixtures that would co-ordinate because both were in the same room – one over the kitchen island and the other over the table. Collaborating with you was a pleasure and we found what we were looking for.
The quality and quantity of your fixtures sets you apart from other Antique Lighting Showrooms as well as your excellent web site and quick responses. I needed distinctive vintage pieces. I would like to see some more basic (and lower priced) antique fixtures to round off your selection? Love your collection!
Item I purchased : (1517g)3-Light Eastlake Gas Chandelier
I really like the personal service I have received. I was able to trade in a fixture that I could no longer use and apply it towards one I was able to use in my new house. I really appreciated being able to do that. I have purchased eight fixtures from your store. At first I lived in a condo with 10 foot high ceilings. Now I live in a house with 7.5 foot ceilings. The challenge has been to incorporate my old lighting into new surroundings and purchase new lighting that doesn’t hang quite so low. I love that you are on the internet now and that I can preview new inventory before it goes up online to the world at large.
Item I purchased : (1615f) 5-Light Arts and Crafts Flush Fixture
Your inventory sets you apart from other Antique lighting dealers. I am pleased with the results of our collaboration. I would have liked to have known the provenance of my two fixtures – old and expensive.
Items I purchased : (1081g) 3-Light Eastlake Gas Chandelier (823h)Gas Harp w/Blue Opalescent Swirl Cylinder Shade
Your selection, and an easy Showroom to visit and see groups of lights, sets Light Power apart from other antique lighting dealers. I was facing the challenge of finding enough sconces ( at least hi-end ones) in good shape and I found what I needed in your showroom.
Item I purchased : (1187s) A Pair of double-arm Bradley and Hubbard Large Oval Back Sconces
Your collection is far more extensive than others we looked at. Once we purchased our fixtures, the service was outstanding – including taking back one of the fixtures to correct the length. Keep doing what you do.
The quality of your work and product sets you apart from other antique lighting dealers. Your very impressive Website and showing of prices for your inventory is a big reason for visiting your Showroom in the South End. We love our Antique Lights – they were expensive but wonderful and we are very pleased to have worked with you. You are terrific – wishing you all the Best.
Items we purchased : (1091g) 4-Light Gas Chandelier (831h)Gas Harp with Opalescent Blue Hobnail Gas Shade
I had to write and thank you for such a beautiful light fixture. I already had it installed and want to keep it on 24 hours a day. It has really ” made ” the bedroom. I will definitely keep your shop in mind for further lighting needs.

Tom – Given the unusual nature of my visit and needs, I was completely satisfied with your services and supporting attitude. Thanks for overcoming your initial distrust and for opening your door to us.
Your interest and support to your customers are wonderful. And your prices are better than elsewhere. You’ve got a great selection of lighting. After being in your store we now look at your Website regularly. You have been a great help to us – literally making home visits – and we love the lights.
Hi Tom, I wanted to let you know that after receiving the chandelier from you, we realized that it was far more impressive in person. Very groovy. After countless hours searching antique shops and online, we finally settled on a chandelier that we could both really like. And we have never seen one like this in all of our searching. It actually took almost 8 years before we found this unique and beautiful fixture. Thanks for being such a pro. You came through with everything which you had promised and your descriptions of the chandelier were if anything, maybe a little understated. These things, make a great difference. It has been my unfortunate experience, that many online retailers offer the moon and very often fail in the described quality of their product and/or in the execution of service. But not with your superlative operation. You have exceeded in all of my expectations! How refreshing! I am attaching photos of it hanging over the table in our dining room. It goes beautifully with our other Art Deco antiques. Kindest Regards
Item we purchased. (393e)3-Light French Art Deco Chandelier
To call the elegantly designed inverted dome we just hung in our dining room a light fixture would not do it justice. This is a work of art! Your assistance and advise proved invaluable in selecting the appropriate design and dimensions for our room. You really know your stuff! Each time we pass by our new dining room we pause for a minute to savor the artistry of this timeless piece. They just don’t make them like this anymore! Thanks.
Your quality of service, range and quality of lights set you apart from other Antique Lighting dealers. Your Website was very useful and your service excellent. We are very pleased with the resuls of our collaboration.

Santa Monica, CA
I didn’t contact any other Antique Dealers – I knew you would have what I wanted. I had small rooms, not too elegant – but I wanted unusual fixtures. I am pleased with the results of our collaboration. All restoration and finishing were perfect on each piece.
We found something we wanted online, ordered it, and it arrived and met our expectations. We really didn’t collaborate – We selected, ordered and successfully received a great light. I would suggest that you remove sold lights from the Web. It is frustrating what one can not have. The light we purchased is great. Thanks.

Personal attention and beautiful fixtures set you apart from other Antique lighting dealers. I needed Period ( Victorian ) lighting and I am please with our collaboration.
Dear Tom :
Thank you for your letter. I have been very pleased with your service – my only complaint is that you are in Boston instead of New York !
Everything about our exchange was terrific – I love my light fixtures, and can’t wait to get them installed in my apartment. The prices were very reasonable, I can tell from comparing your rewiring to some other fixtures I purchased in a thrift shop that you took a great deal of care and that my contractor will have no problems with them. In addition, your willingness to credit my account for a fixture I decided I couldn’t use and your assistance in storing my fixtures until I needed them were really helpful to me and much appreciated.
I only wish you were here to put these other fixtures in shape for me !
I hope all is well with you.

It is hard to say what set you apart from other antique lighting dealers. I needed beaded basket shades – the sort that go right up against the ceiling and not too expensive. I am pleased with our collaboration. I would suggest that you have more chandeliers and sconces that are combination of Black and Gold – Swedish ( light in feeling ) unusual. Lots of old lamp shades of all sizes would be good for you to have.

Tom gave great suggestions as to how I could keep the integrity of the fixture while giving it a fresh modern look for my loft space.

Your showroom, tucked away near Albany St, is truly a magical place, with so many beautiful old lights hanging from the ceiling. ” Please ” is too mild a word to describe my feelings about Light Power – ” thrilled – more accurately describes my reaction to your service. You are courteous , friendly and was willing to repair my chandelier quickly so i would have it in time for Christmas.
Tom is amazing ! He knew just what I wanted and helped me find it to fit our house. It was a difficult area and he visited to see where it would hang. I am very pleased with my collaboration with Tom. Keep up the great service…

What I purchased. Inverted dome w/ three ears
Light Power has a terrific variety of periods and styles, at prices much better than other Antique lighting Dealers. The prices are usually better than a modern reproduction. Finding Gas era Lighting for Victorian Houses Circa 1850 – 1875, are a period that many Dealers are weak in.
I have referred many friends and business customers who have found just what they were looking for.
Your service is great – just keep at it !

I liked your fixtures in a magazine ad , called the ad and reached you on the phone. You were immediately encouraging that you could help me find what I needed to hang over my Kitchen Island. I’ve been in Antique shops from Boston to D.C. on this project and I contacted many throughout the internet . I did not reach anyone else that felt they could supply what I wanted.
Everything was smooth, packaging was excellent, photos on the internet were great representations.
I love the fixtures.

You were very nice, helpful and had just what I wanted. You didn’t make my request seem insignificant.

The specialty items and the ever changing inventory keep us coming back ! Color and vaulted ceilings were our main challenge. You helped us with both. You always do whatever we dream !
