1930s aluminum and Hobnail ceiling lights TWO


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer two 1930s aluminum surface-mounted ceiling fixtures!

This listing is for:
ONE 3-bulb fixture!
ONE 2-bulb fixture!

Remarkably, the fixtures retain their distinctive original glass finials. Cool.

Around each socket is a dazzling Hobnail glass ring.

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

DETAILS: The fixtures accept standard base 60W bulbs (not included).

COLOR: Aluminum and glass.

SIZE: The fixtures are 10-inches wide, and the Hobnail disks are 2-inches from the ceiling.


  • The only issue is minor and curious. On the 3-bulb fixture there is a small hole on the surface of the aluminum body, and tucked under one of the Hobnail disk (see last image). I cannot imagine how it got there.
  • The porcelain sockets and wiring are new. The porcelain outer socket rings are original.
  • The aluminum has subtle tonal irregularities. Some parts are shiny bright like chrome. Some parts look like brushed aluminum. With all the reflections, this is not readily obvious.
