Schoolhouse Chain Pendant W/ Rounded Opal Shade Item # R4344

Circa 1920

$245.00

With the formula for schoolhouse-style lighting as simple as it is, it doesn't take much to add a little character and distinction to the basic form. In the case of this sturdy vented chain pendant, finished in Matte Antique, it is the proportion of the cap on the shadeholder that gives it just that little something special. 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.
