The Classical Revival remained strong into the late 1920s and 1930s, finding fresh expression in large and often elaborately decorated opal schoolhouse-type shades used in commercial and some large residential settings. Often executed in pale tones, the decoration added sophistication, warmth, and visual interest to otherwise rather simple lights. These fixtures were typically used in commercial or institutional settings, or in entries and stairwells in larger homes. Today they can have a wonderful air of eclectic formality and restrained romance. This example is especially stunning, as the large acanthus-leaf element above the shadeholder transitions beautifully into the reverse-tapered shade. This shade shape is quite modern, yet the light brown decorative treatment gives it a wonderful formal feeling. Note the intricate pattern applied to the center of the bottom of the shade as well.
