The Pass & Seymour Inc. line of Alabax lighting promised a fixture that would not tarnish, rust or stain – because it was made entirely of porcelain. These stark and utilitarian flush mount fixtures have a wonderful modern shape that, finished with a bright glaze, emits as much light as any glass shade. In their 1941 catalog, Alabax exclaimed the modern beauty and use of their small exposed bulb fixtures: "Hundreds of hotels around the country have replaced old metal fixtures with new Alabax fixtures."

Porcelain light fixtures first rose in prominence during the late 1920s. Their "sanitary" character, easy styling, range of colors, low costs, and material availability made them very popular during the Depression and World War II years, and they remained a mass-market staple well into the 1950s.

  • Historical Style: Classic
  • Bulbs not included.
