318-PIN-BK Historical Pagoda Light Black with Incandescent Socket

Being a casting and machine factory who produce custom work for others, as well as our own line of house hardware and lighting,  here is a recreation that we can share with you as well.  Our newest recreation is the cast iron “Pagoda Light” from the 1914 Historical Park at Point Defiance (near Tacoma), WA.

The Pagoda at Point Defiance Park opened to the public in May, 1914, as a replica of a 17th century Japanese lodge, influenced by Japanese architecture of the Hare and Hare plan of 1911.

Referred to as “The Car Station” the pagoda served originally as a waiting room for streetcars, with restrooms and first aid facilities on the lower level. Architect Luther Twichell designed the new streetcar station in the Japanese "Pagoda" style, which was complementary to the adjoining gardens.

Later used as a bus station and then as a local venue for gardening clubs and floral displays, the pagoda was restored in 1988. It looks as much the same as it originally did, with some modern updates. In 2010 Vintage Hardware & Lighting was commissioned to reproduce the Pagoda Light to replace damaged and missing lights.

We are showing this versatile light with our 4" fitter round opal glass shade , which duplicates the 1914 original shade. Glass shades are sold separately, or you may have antique shades that will complement this classic design.

Measurements:  Overall footprint is 16 ½” tall  (bottom of the round shade shown to the top of the backplate) by 12” wide  (Decorative roof width).  Backplate is 11 ½”  tall by 5” wide. 

This is a security mount item.  It mounts with two hex head, wood thread, lag bolts.  These lag bolt heads are then concealed completely with a decorative cap which completely covers them.  (They actually thread onto the head of the lag bolts.  And if you use Locktite 282,  it would make the decorative cap removal almost impossible)  The lag bolts are on 8 ¼” centers.  Other mounting options can be discussed.


Up to 150 watts incandescent.
