Countless simple chain pendants with "schoolhouse"-style shades like this one were sold in the 1930s for banks, stores, theaters, factories and schools. This example has a special twist in the dual-glass shade, which utilizes a white or opal lower half for glare-free diffusion, and a softly translucent upper half that allows more light output to be directed up and reflected from the ceiling.
