311-SNW  Polished Unlacquered Brass 14" Tall Victorian Style Newel Post Light {PICTURED}

311-SNW-DK  Antique Brass Finish 14" Tall Victorian Style Newel Post Light {PICTURED}

311-SNW-OB  Oil Rubbed Bronze Finish 14" Tall Victorian Style Newel Post Light

This is an adapted reproduction of a newel post light from around 1890 by R. Williamson & Co. We say "adapted" because it's now fully wired for electricity.

This short newel post is perfect for tight spots.  Use these in a line across the balcony of a long stairway rail, to supplement wall sconces.

Available in polished unlacquered brass, which will develop a patina over time, or choose between Antique Brass Finish or our matte black Oil Rubbed Bronze Finish for a darker tone.  Use the menu above to select your favorite finish.


  • Height:  14" high to the top of the fitter (without shade).
    • Add the height of whatever shade you choose for the full height.
  • Base:  4 ¾" in diameter.
  • Fitter Size:  4"
  • Wattage:  One socket, rated up to 100 watts incandescent.
    • Mounting & wiring schematic can be viewed by clicking HERE.
      Save these instructions on your computer by right-clicking your mouse over the image and selecting "Save image as.." or use CTRL-S on your keyboard.

Glass shade is sold separately.  We picture our hand-crafted crown oak leaf shade, but have many
4" fitter size shades to choose from.

Newel post lights are usually controlled by a wall switch.  A rotary style On/Off switch can be installed on the base for an extra $25.00.  If you would like to add the switch to your shopping cart, please select "Add Switch" in the options menu above.
