Semi-Flush Schoolhouse Fixture w/Classical Details, c1920

Item #R3501


Not all fixtures in the "schoolhouse" family were plain – this example has the same semi-flush profile seen in many fixtures of the era, but adds an embossed band of Classic Revival detailing to the brass base for an added level of class and visual interest.

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.
