Unusual Schoolhouse Chain Pendant, c1925 Item # R3581

Check with customer service for available quantities.


This schoolhouse chain pendant is such an archetype of its era that we essentially reproduced it with our Baldwin. It is the lovely and unusual schoolhouse shade that sets this example apart. If you were looking for a classic yet slightly different example of schoolhouse lighting, this would be a candidate.

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.

  • Historical Style: Classic
  • Notes: This fixture has a 5" fitter
