Our Story

It is with great pleasure that we introduce our new company, Wentworth Avenue Lighting.

You may know us over these past 18 years as Old California Lantern Company. From our earliest days at Old California Lantern we have had the pleasure of designing and fabricating beautiful, historically inspired Arts & Crafts and Greene & Greene style lighting fixtures. We have built these wonderful fixtures for large commercial projects as well as for magnificent “Ultimate Bungalow’s throughout the country.

Why Wentworth Avenue you may ask? Well, when we were brainstorming about company names it dawned on us that one of the most historically significant areas for Greene & Greene style architecture and historical homes is the Hillcrest area of Pasadena, California. One of the most prominent streets in this historical area is called Wentworth Avenue. It sounded like a perfect name for our new company so here we are.

Wentworth Avenue’s products represent our very best efforts to create beautiful works of art in lighting. Many of these fixtures I am sure you will agree are as beautiful and inspiring as any “Fine Art” painting, drawing or sculpture.

We invite you to spend time on our website and review our lighting fixtures. Please call or email us with your request for more information and pricing. If you have an opportunity to be in Southern California we invite you to see these beautiful fixtures first hand and take a tour of our manufacturing facility.


Thank you,
The Richard Family
