The most common sizes were small 1-light and 2-light fixtures used in bedrooms and hallways, especially as replacements for older obsolete styles, Larger multi-light bowl chandeliers were used in dining rooms. The shades are usually heavy pressed designs with a mix of tinted or etched glass and clear decorative areas.
