White Enamel Steel Flush Mount Schoolhouse Fixture, c1945 Item # R1290
We recognized this humble yet sturdy version of the classic flush-mount schoolhouse fixture as a near identical match to one in a bedroom of our own home – a bedroom on the second floor in an 1894 Queen Anne that was converted to a kitchenette when the house was broken up into apartments around 1950. This story is a great example of the varied paths antique lights take through life to reach the present – and who knows what paths their futures hold? Will this one find its way to you?
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.
