While the classic schoolhouse shade on this pendant couldn't get much simpler, the fixture itself is a bit of a wonder. Combining strong Art Deco styling with an almost Old English acorn motif, the result is quite unusual and distinctive.

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: Copper color lacquer over antique steel.
