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!
Moderne is an aesthetic that developed after the Art Deco period. This aesthetic was relatively short lived, and reached the height of its popularity in the late 1930s. Emerald City, in the movie Wizard of Oz, is Moderne gone Hollywood. Many lighting fixtures labeled Art Deco are more accurately Moderne.
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!
