Harte Design Traditional Outdoor Cast Iron Park Lanterns
All items listed for sale were formerly used to light up the car park of The Wicklow Arms in Delgany, Co. Wicklow and were removed when the property was sold.
1. On offer here are 5 Traditional Cast Iron Park Lanterns that are perfect aside from some of the panes of glass being broken (easily replaced). Any damaged panes of glass have been photographed as seen above. And there is an additional pane as photographed below also. They are 7 foot 6 and were bought originally from (https://www.harteoutdoorlighting.ie ) directly.
2. As well as these five complete sets I have another 7 foot 6 lamp post and the original lamp lid however the glass is gone and the frame for the glass is damaged as seen in the picture but can be replaced also.
3. The last two items are 6 foot posts with no lamps as they were stolen when in their former home and for anyone planning on using them for the car park of a restaurant that sign may be of use to you also.
After contacting Harte Outdoor Lighting to find out the price of their brand new 7 foot 6 Traditional Cast Iron Park Lanterns I was quoted €460. Taking into account the need for a few replacement panes for the 5 lamps described in paragraph 1 the asking price is €250 per unit but I would like to get rid of them as a set so therefore I am willing to negotiate the price for the set of 5. (4 SOLD)
With regard to the extra 7 foot 6 lamp post described in paragraph 2 due to the work that is needed to revive it the asking price for this is €150. SOLD
As for the two 6 foot posts since they require lamps to be bought for them I will accept €100 for the pair of them (€50 per unit)
Harte Lighting have been manufacturing lights of this kind since 1983. To give a better understanding of what goes into making these lanterns see below;
"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."
