Faceted Art Deco Pendant by Virden w/ Prismatic Shade c1930 Item # R8361
This amazing pendant offered a two-for-one in commercial Deco design: Firstly, the diamond-tiered dual opacity shade (which features hand-painted pinstriping and a clear pressed-glass lens Secondly, the cast white metal canopy adds plenty of decorative interest. Part of Virden Lighting Company's Commodore line, which was distributed via their catalog program in the 1930's, the lights were offered in pewter or bronze tones. We have replicated the pewter finish in this offering.
Fixtures like this were promoted "For Stores, Public Buildings, Banks, Etc." and were especially popular in commercial settings. One c1934 catalog describes this fixture thusly: "Moderne Art - Its Greatest Appeal Is In Lighting Equipment. Decorative lighting is an attraction, and many of the leading merchants in large cities have responded to the new modern method of Lighting in view of the added attraction it adds."
- Historical Style: Art Deco
