Lighting

4" Fitter

The 4" fitter shades and globes you'll see here covered the gamut of turn-of-the-century lighting, from gas-powered Victorian to Modern electric styles. In between the shift from gas to electric power was gas/electric lighting, a hybrid of both sources. Stylistically matched 4" and 2-1/4" fitter shades were paired together on fixtures like the Curtis. Eventually, the 4" fitter size was adopted for electric lighting, enabling the rise of the popular schoolhouse lighting style.
