1940s maritime ceiling fixture by Lightolier


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this stunning 1940s maritime-theme ceiling fixture by the incomparable Lightolier Company!

Beginning in the 1920s, and for many decades thereafter, the Lightolier Company (extant today of course) made some of the very finest fixtures. Their designs were always simply dazzling, and the quality was the very very very best. When you restore vintage lights such as I do, these aspects are so obvious they tend to jump out. It’s always a particular pleasure restoring a Lightolier!

I mean, wow!

The shade features a dazzling starburst compass. In the center hangs a wonderful brass anchor! The fitter is red, and this has brass spheres.

Yep, it just don’t get any better.

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

DETAILS: The fixture accepts three standard base 60W bulbs.
COLOR: See above. As well, the shade has a very pale beige frosting.
SIZE: The fixture hangs down about 7-inches. The glass shade is 10-wide. The red fitter is almost 13-wide.

  • There is no damage.
  • The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring. The red is original and in fine shape.

SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
