"Staple" Gas/Electric Pendant w/Etched Shades, c1897 Item # R0966


Basic fixtures with simple designs that were broadly distributed through jobbers and power companies were called "staples" and were found in vastly more old houses than the fancier designs. Even fancy houses would resort to staples for rooms like pantries, hallways, and servants' quarters. The blue-collar fixtures of their day, these were lights that offered straightforward looks and dependable functionality for an affordable price. Classic combination pendants like this one were often used in kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, and other everyday spaces for reliable light delivery and hassle-free performance. This fixture features a top-quality matched set of finely acid-etched and hand-crimped shades with carbon filament bulbs for a completely authentic turn-of-the-century look.
