Rare Federal Electric Co. Enamel Cluster Pendant Item # R9181

Circa 1905


This industrial pendant checks all the boxes for the most desirable antique industrial lighting. Unusual design, a porcelain enamel reflector, and an early electric socket cluster all come together in this rare and unusual example from Chicago's Federal Electric Company. A porcelain enamel shade and fixture, held together by a simple cast metal rod and bolt, holds the four-bulb cluster below. Note the porcelain sockets – each of them has the tiny "F.E. Co" name stamped along their collar.

These days, when the name is recognized at all, Federal Electric is known more for their incredible electrified porcelain signage of the same period than for light fixtures. Federal Electric was founded by John H. Goehst, who also happened to by the company's chief designer. Led by Goehst, the company patented dozens of uniquely formulated lights, signs and electrical parts, mostly made from porcelain enamel and many with their trademark "F.E. Co" stamped sockets. The main idea behind Goehst's designs was mass-manufacturing. His creations could be stamped, cast and formed to fit any clients needs and his favorite medium was porcelain enamel.

  • Historical Style: Industrial
