I've seen a similar fixture at Lantern & Scroll (this is the one I used). I know if they don't have it they can make it. They were awesome to work with. Find them on here. Cheers!

thank you getting back to me, my project was completed in June 2013 I ended up using BM light pewter for walls, wainscoting and trim are BM white dove, floors are a rich deep brown with a tint of grey, the entry came out amazing. ( I also installed custom double front doors). thank you your inspiration!

I would love to help you---it is just that we do so many projects and when they are complete, they are archived. The best way to get a color that enhances the space you live in is detailed in this blog I wrote. Best wishes. http://clawsonarchitects.blogspot.com/2012/08/what-color-is-that-how-to-select.html

This is the homeowner: The posting above refers to Circa lighting which iis a good source, but this lantern over the stairs is actually from Currey and Company lighting. It is the Grayson lantern, large size. I might have changed the finish to a a slightly darker color (slight upcharge) like old iron or dark bronze, but I'm not sure, or it might be ok left as is in French Black. The glass is beautiful on it.
