About Starkey Antique Lighting


Refurbished Historic Antique Lighting Fixtures

NILES STARKEY takes original antique lighting fixtures and refurbishes them to their historic luster and pairs them with authentic traditional glass shades. 

You may purchase finished lighting from his Showroom at his home in Port Townsend, at the Port Townsend Antique Mall, or build your own custom design from hundreds of fixtures, lighting parts, glass crystals, and 5000 glass shades!
