Chrome Deco-Era Store Flush Mount w/Lens Shade, c1932

Item #R0744


Even more than the distinctive Deco-era commercial shade that is fitted to it, it is the chrome plating on this forward-looking base that reflects the very latest trends of the early Depression. Developed in the automobile industry, "chromium" was the new metal finish that quickly supplanted nickel and appealed to more modern tastes. The clear pressed-glass lens on the bottom of the shade directed more intense illumination downward while the opal upper glass diffused the light evenly around the space. This example includes its original pull-chain switch installed in the canopy.
