Interesting Early Schoolhouse Pendant w/2-Part Holder Item # R1340

Circa 1922

$234.99 $325.00

With a look that is just a little more "old-fashioned" and interesting than your usual schoolhouse-type fixtures, this one has a distinctive two-part shadeholder and loop-to-loop connections at top and bottom to ensure a straight hang regardless of ceiling slope. Shade has a small hole in the bottom center – this may have been for a finial, or may have allowed the bugs to fall out for easier cleaning, depending on the story you want to believe.

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.
