Vieux Carré [view-ka-ray]
The Vieux Carré or French Quarter lantern is distinctively New Orleans. Even today, the French Quarter is the heart and soul of modern New Orleans and serves as a continuous reminder of the city's colonial past.
The unique Vieux Carré finial (top) adds both strength and substance to an otherwise standad body. This finial was popular in a time when quality was king and can take a master craftsman the better part of the day to make.
Applications include Acadian, Country French, Plantation, Colonial and Georgian architectural styles.
