1940s Virden surface mount ceiling fixtures PAIR


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer a pair of late 1940s surface-mounted ceiling fixtures by Virden!

This listing is for TWO matching fixtures.

The fixtures are 13-1/2-inches high, so they are ideal for rooms with low-ish ceilings. The shades are 15-inches wide.

The fixtures abound with great details:
The wide brass ceiling canopy!
The glass stems!
The brass filigree edge on the shades!
Under each shade is a lovely glass disk!

The shades have a leaf/flower design in very pale yellow.

Each fixture has three sockets, accepting a total of 240W.

It’s hard finding such fixtures with all their original components intact.

While first produced in the late 1940s, the fixtures would have been offered through to the early 1960s.

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


  • The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
  • The brass has been polished.

COLOR: See above.

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