Simple Chrome Schoolhouse Flush-Mount w/14” Shade, c1935 Item # R1298
The very plain styling and straightforward lines of this flush-mount schoolhouse fixture, along with the original chrome finish, date it to the 1930s or later. With its 14” diameter opal shade, this would be a great fixture for a larger kitchen of the era. See R1299 for a similar base (but with a different shade).
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.
