Description

Sturdy and relatively simple flush-mount porcelain bases like this Moderne-style stepped design were most frequently sold as kitchen fixtures, often outfitted with an opal (or white glass) shade like the one here. This fixture was offered in 1941 by Montgomery Ward, with quite similar shade choices as can be seen in the original catalog image. We found this particular flush-mount design so appealing a few years ago, that we reproduced it as our Mathison.

Porcelain light fixtures first rose in prominence during the late 1920s. Their "sanitary" character, easy styling, range of colors, low costs, and material availability made them very popular during the Depression and World War II years, and they remained a mass-market staple well into the 1950s. Most were intended for kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, and they frequently featured exposed bulbs and painted flowers or metallic pin striping.
