Another example of the basic schoolhouse fixture in its most simple and classic form, this chain pendant has been stripped down to raw steel and given a light antiqued patina for a different, more industrial look. The addition of a pull chain at the canopy adds a little functional personality.

The pendant or semi-flush lights often called "schoolhouse fixtures" are defined by their large white (or "opal") diffusing glass shades and simple designs. These fixtures first rose to popularity around 1920 and were common well into the 1950s. They were certainly found in schoolhouses, but were also installed in pretty much any commercial or institutional setting where high levels of illumination were desired at low cost. From plain and super-simple to dressed up with flourishes and decorated glass, there is a schoolhouse fixture for most any setting.

Finish: Antiqued steel.
