Harte Designs Trad. Cast Iron Park Lanterns (seven)

Description (updated on 07/10/2012 at 06:56pm):

On offer here are seven items individually made by Harte Designs in New Ross, Co. Wexford (http://www.hartedesigns.ie ):

SIX traditional cast iron park lanterns (380mm tall)

ONE traditional pole-mounted park lantern (pole 1740mm tall, lantern 380mm tall)

I recently removed these from my back garden during renovation and now no longer have a use for them. They are *heavy duty* and are in pretty good nick considering they've been amongst the elements for about 20 years or so. One lamp has cracked glass (easily replaced).

New, these lanterns sell for €200 apiece, as can be seen here:

The lantern and pole combination sells for over €435 apiece, as can be seen here:

The total value new of this set would be over €1635.00 (not including VAT!).

Now, these are not new but some, however, may like the 'weathered look' even more than new!

I'm willing to let the whole set go for €800, less than 1/2 of new. (I'd like to sell them as a lot and not break them up) Please contact me if interested.

See below for more information on these fine hand-crafted works of classic beauty:

"The Traditional Park Range has been translated and scaled down from an original Victorian lamp design. It can be seen in many prestigious locations around the country, The Radisson , St Helen’s Hotel, Stillorgan, Co. Dublin; Faithlegg House Hotel & Country Club, Co. Waterford; Leinster House, Dublin; Mount Juliet, Co. Kilkenny; Waterford Castle, Co. Wexford, Áras and Uachtaráin and at some of the country’s major stud farms.

Harte Lighting has been manufacturing high quality Outdoor & Garden Lighting in Cast Iron for over 25 years. Although it is produced repetitively, Cast Iron is not machine made. The original pattern is the work of a creative artist who initially carves his design in wood. Molten metal is poured into the depressions made by this pattern in the sand. The metal is allowed to cool, then the casting is lifted from its sand bed. Considerable skill is necessary to produce good smooth castings. In foundry practice the weakest of the materials, which is the sand, imposes its will on the strongest - this is the art and mystery of the iron moulder."

@trooper - yes, I believe so. Thai is what they were designed for.

Hi,

Let me know if you can sell just two. Are they suitable for over a pillar?

Thanks!

@mummy2b: Hi Mummy2b! Yes, these can be mounted on a pillar. In fact, they came off of a (concrete) pillar. In the photo you an see the red plastic thread inserts from them. They could be put into wood or anything else if you like. Or, the base flanges could be taken off and the lanterns put onto poles.

What is the best price for 2? You can pm
Me id u prefer.

Thanks!
Dreambiz says 04/10/2012 4:11 pm (1 year ago):
@mummy2b: I'd really prefer them to go as a set. Not just because it makes it easier on me, but because, well, they belong together! IF I were to let them go individually, it couldn't be for less than €150 each. These are very industrial strength pieces and will probably outlast the lot of us, which is why county councils choose Harte Designs for their street furniture.
