Classic Black Flush-Mount w/Schoolhouse Mushroom Shade, c1932

Item #R1998


The somewhat plain and utilitarian trim profile of the base of this fixture was a design commonly found in commercial settings because of its simple and straightforward style. The black enamel finish on the base offers timeless character, and with the clean half-moon shaped 11" opal shade this would be a great fixture for a kitchen, porch, or large bathroom from the 1920s right up to the 1950s.

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.
