Because of their easy, informal styling and inexpensive design accessibility, schoolhouse-type fixtures have become fairly ubiquitous today (much as they perhaps were in the 1920s and 1930s). That's what makes this example such a stand-out in the crown – it's simple construction combined with the unusual shape of the shade with proportion and presence unlike any other. Adapting Portland's popular slogan, we think this light helps "Keep Schoolhouse Fixtures Weird" – in a good way.

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.
