    I bought 2 of those porch lights on ebay several years ago. They were in rough shape so I stripped the paint off of them and repainted them hammered black (the metal had corroded a bit). The brass straps were broken, so I fabricated new stainless straps from duct clamps and affixed them with the original knurled brass knobs, which I left patinated to avoid bringing in a jarring bright brass note that would have clashed with the new black and silver color scheme. I also rewired them while I was at it. They’re on either side of my garage door and look exactly right!
