Before electricity, gas lines supplied the energy to light many of our homes and workspaces. When the conversion took place, fixtures were often retrofitted to accommodate electric lamps.Such was the inspiration for this ceiling fixture. Drawing upon the minimalist, utilitarian elements of early twentieth century industrial design, we used solid steel and brass and cast iron fittings to construct the main body. Then we strung the wiring and lamp socketsjust as the countless gasmen-turned-electricians who came before us once did. The sockets are handsome reproductions with an oil-rubbed bronze finish and classic flat paddle switches. The wiring is new antique style twisted cloth cord. (Cord shown in vintage brown). A pair of brass cone lamp shades rounds out the look. These are assembled by hand in our shop, and the fixture components are artificially aged to lend each lamp a unique vintage character.
The shades are raw brass, and we leave them alone so they will continue to age naturally over time and develop the perfect patina. All parts are quality reproductions making for completely safe and worry-free operation. Fixture mounts to the ceiling via ceiling canopy and hardware.Multiple cord colors and shade options are available with this fixture. We can also add swivel joints to each of the sockets to allow titling on a vertical plane. So if you don't see what you're looking for, drop us a line and we'll do a custom build for you! Measurements: Arms: 10 from end to center tee Fixture: 19" from center bulb to center bulb, 6" from top of socket mount to bottom of shade Shades: 8" diameter Downrod: 24" (customizable).
