We are now open by appointment only for shopping and only offering our other services to the trades. This is not the direction we want to go but we are unable to higher competent workshop help.
Over the last 17 years Todd Clark the owner of Clark Vintage Lighting has restored and repaired thousands of new, vintage and antique lights. We have the knowledge, skills, tools and parts to do everything from rewiring a table lamp to the refinishing and electrification of large complex antique fixtures.
Clark Vintage Lighting is a high-end antique restoration shop. In order to perform the restoration work we do we stock an extensive collection of antique, vintage and new lamp parts as well as maintain a metal fabrication workshop. These measures allow Clark Vintage Lighting to provide the custom services our customers have come to expect. The pricing guidelines listed below reflect our commitment to providing only the best.
We bill labor at $120/hour. Generally, you can estimate rewiring at about $120 per arm or socket. Refinishing and rewiring usually comes in at about $240 per arm. Your light could cost a lot more or possibly less. We are happy to give you an estimate.
Basic table lamp rewiring is $60, floor lamps are $65. This includes a quick wash or dusting, all new electric components, and minor repairs and tightening. Extras include things like more than one socket, missing sockets, harps/finials, and cloth cord. If you light needs more than what our basic table and floor lamp rewiring includes it will be billed based on our labor rate of $120 an hour. We are happy to give you an estimate.
All lights Clark Vintage works on must be completely rewired by Clark Vintage Lighting. Hardwired ceiling and wall fixtures that qualify for UL listing under UL1598 can be UL Listed if requested by client.
If you do not feel your lamp justifies this expense, we recommend taking it somewhere else. Many independent hardware stores will rewire lamps.
