Dunleith Designs and Antiques

1804 Magazine St. • 272-0879 • www.dunleithdesigns.comKen Rogers of Dunleith Designs and Antiques invites you to come in and see his first period antique lighting devices. They are a fascinating part of our past and can be so much fun to collect. (As well as for investment as values continue to escalate!) Each type has a wonderful story behind it. The Sinumbra lamp pictured was developed with a circular fuel tank so as to not produce shadows. Sinumbra is Latin for “without shadows.”  This form of lighting can add such a special touch to any setting and can be the ultimate conversation piece!
