I’m very pleased to offer this impressive 1950s surface-mounted ceiling fixture by Moe Light!

One  image is from their 1959 catalog, and the fixture was priced at $7.95! Ahhh, what a different era. I know you laugh at the price, but you could buy similar fixtures, although not quite as nicely detailed, for half the price. So, this fixture was pricey in its day.

The fixture was also made in the USA. Remember that far, far away time?

The shade is quite striking. It has four very beautiful flowers. Lovely. The flowers are clear glass but with – and this is important – gold sparkles applied to the inner surface of the glass. Sparkles! Very nice.

There’s also a distinctive gold band at the edge of the fixture. It’s remarkable that this remains intact.

Please also note the oversize, and original, finial. Don’t you think these small touches make all the difference?

The fixture is but 5-inches tall, so is ideal for low ceilings. The shade is 14-inches wide, so was meant for a normal-size living/dining room, or bedroom (Moe also offered 12- and 16-inch versions).

The fixture has a two-bulb cluster, offering a total of 120W.

Amazingly, the original Moe ceiling bracket is included, and the original mounting nuts!

This fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts two standard base 60W bulbs.

COLOR: White and gold.

SIZE: See above.

CONDITION:

  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The socket cluster is original (and in fine shape).
  • The wiring is original, modern plastic, and also in fine shape.
  • The canopy is, I believe, brass, and retains its original protective varnish in excellent condition. The varnish on the finial button has been removed.

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