Long before restoration styles, and vintage style Edison bulbs, made transparent glass shades all the rage (again), there was a predominant choice for pragmatic outdoor lighting. Called “Jelly Jar Lights,” these outdoor jar wall lights were an early adaptation of available items for a very practical application.
Somewhere along the line, a lighting maverick found a way to fix a canning jar to their porch light. This was likely done to protect the bulb; however, the resulting good look has transcended times and styles to become a corner stone of porch lighting. It's befitting a Norman Rockwell painting, as iconic American lighting.
The Creekside 1-Light Outdoor Wall Lantern, in black, is Capitol Lighting's updated version of an American Classic. This 1-Light Wall Lantern, style # 9671BK, has a stand out presence and a beautifully crafted elegance. Featuring contemporary barn light style elements, this new version of the outdoor jar light has already proven to be a real winner.
