Thank you for the wonderful conservation of my Baltic chandeliers. When you first saw them, they were fragile, dirty and depressing. They are now transformed. I appreciate your efforts to work in such a timely fashion, and that the bill was within the agreed estimate.

For the last 7 years I’ve used Appleton Lighting to rewire lamps on several major remodeling jobs. The quality of work has been excellent and so has their service. They do what they say they will do, deliver in a timely manner and always return my phone calls.

The antique chandeliers, sconces, and exterior lights that you so artfully restored are beautifully serving the Public Library and people of Nahant. Visitors who need similar restoration often ask who worked on the fixtures, and I never hesitate to recommend Appleton to any inquirer.

Loukas and his staff did a fabulous job restoring three chandeliers that are now the focal point of our recently renovated Main Library. They add a marvelous elegance to our 100 year old facility. His crew is friendly and neat.

The 19th century chandeliers restored by Appleton Antique Lighting are a key element to the success of our restoration project. Long time library users, familiar with how the chandeliers looked prior to being restored, marvel at the transformation.
