Is there anything more adorable than the dapper little penguins adorning this pair of porcelain sconces? Facing off on either side of a bare bulb socket, these penguins add the perfect touch of modern style to the otherwise utilitarian light fixtures.

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.
