The origins of Malco’s Handmade Lighting fixtures can be traced back to the seafaring days of the 19th century. Mariners used to burn their lamps well into the wee hours of the night, keeping their homes lit by burning whale oil in what came to be called “onion lights” for their round and bulbous shape. Drawing on traditional designs, Brass Traditions has preserved the tradition of the past but given them a contemporary twist. Offering a selection of handmade indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures, the company bases all of their designs on the traditional methods, but uses better quality finishes and lighter glass so that homeowners can display these beautiful pieces by mounting them on indoor or outdoor spaces.
Onion lights are popular all along the New England coast and Eastern Seaboard, as residents pay homage to their oceanic past. However, these handmade lights also make stunning additions to any home, no matter the location. They will immediately draw your houseguests’ attention, as their contemporary yet nostalgic look evokes memories of the past. When you install Brass Traditions handmade lighting, these items quickly become the focal point of any room, and tend to be a bit of a conversation piece.
