White Enamel Steel Flush Mount Schoolhouse Fixture, c1945 Item # R1958
Simple yet loaded with that classic period charm and fresh sense of proportion that simply can't be imitated, this fixture features a combo of white enameled-steel fixture base and a stylish opal glass schoolhouse shade. The single nickel-plated screw that holds the shade in place provides the perfect accent to the ensemble.
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.
