Large Semi-Spherical Schoolhouse Chain Pendant, c1925 Item # R1296
This rather large schoolhouse pendant is richly finished in an antique copper tone and features an awesome 17" diameter semi-spherical shade with clean, forward-looking lines. A traditional slip-type canopy and vented shadeholder add authentic vintage character.
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: New copper-colored lacquer over hand-rubbed antique brass.
