1900 Early Electric pendant


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this astonishing circa-1900 Early Electric pendant!

During most of the 19th-century gas lighting was the norm. Then, very late in the century, electricity was introduced, and gas/electric combination fixtures slowly worked their way into buildings across the country. In the last few years of the 1890s, all electric fixtures started being offered, such as this knock-out.


The 3-shade fixture is lusciously, wondrously detailed. I love looking at it.

Scale-wise, the fixture is ideal for a spacious entry hall, or a medium- to small-sized parlor.

The fixture is brass, and I but gently polished it so as not to lose the patina.

The glass shades are deliciously ruffled.

The fixture is ideal for a home built in the late 1890s to, say, around 1908.

With all new wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: Brass with patina.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down 28-1/2-inches and is 22-1/2-inches wide (shade edge to shade edge). I can adjust the height up/down; just let me know! The shades have 2-1/4-inch fitters.
The shades have the standard small chips to their fitting ends (which cannot be seen). One shade has numerous chips to its fitting end (which cannot be seen).
The turn-key sockets are in fine shape with new wiring and paper insulators.
Each fitter (the small piece of hardware holding the shades) is subtly different. I stress the word subtle. I only noticed after removing them for cleaning.
