1930s lights. THREE. Great for kitchen


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer THREE incredible late 1930s aluminum and glass surface-mounted Moderne fixtures!

The shades are a whopping 21-inches wide, but the fixtures are only 14-inches high – so they would be ideal for rooms with low ceilings.

Each fixture accepts a 300W bulb so the amount of light is very impressive, while the shades diffuse the bulb for an attractive quality of light. Nice. Very nice.

I also love the decorative gray band around the shade bottom.

The canopies are ingenious (the cup that touches the ceiling). They simply pull down on a metal spring bar. Very very cool. As such, the fixtures have a wonderful simplicity about them. No visible mounting screws!

One? Two? Three?
Say you only need a pair. Or one. Just let me know!

The fixtures were originally meant for a commercial setting but today their aesthetic is highly valued for domestic interiors, too. What a knock-out this set would be in a kitchen all lined up in a row. Wow. Or, all three close together over a long dining room table?

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

DETAILS: Each fixture accepts one Mogul-size 300W bulb. These are available from any good hardware store or places like Home Depot.
COLOR: White shade with gray details. Aluminum.
SIZE: See above.

  • The only issues are minor. One shade has a tiny chip near to one edge (not on the edge). The aluminum has subtle scuffs. I wish to stress that none of this will be obvious with the fixtures eight or more feet in the air.
  • The sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring.

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