Hang on to a piece of history with this gorgeous Art Deco exterior lantern salvaged from the original 1929 Philadelphia Civic Center. Complete with working electric wiring, an irreplaceable verdigris patina, and scrolling leaf details, the fixture can easily be translated into the home. Standing over four-feet tall, the sheer size, coupled with the intricate workmanship, gives the piece a sculptural identity outside of its first life. (Philadelphia Civic Center light fixture ($12,500) at Second Chance architectural salvage warehouse, 1501 Warner St., 410-385-1101.)
