Schoolhouse Ceiling Pendant - Washington

from $150.00

Product Code: P039-BLK-MED

These schoolhouse pendant lights are beautiful reproductions of the classic lights which were mainly found in libraries, schools and courthouses in the 1920s. These beautifully stylish opal glass shades are a timeless classic. They accurately duplicate the delicate lines and classic shapes that are admired by so many. The medium schoolhouse pendant lights are hung with a braided textured light cord. Whereas the large fixtures are hung with a black chain and cord to support the weight and add that finishing touch.

With their timeless appeal, these glass pendant lights will fit in with many interiors, not in the least with industrial ones. They give classic flair to any bedroom or entryway and can be incorporated into any contemporary room or traditional kitchen. Available only at Fat Shack Vintage!

Features include:

  • Opal glass shade
  • Genuine bakelite gallery
  • Ideal kitchen islands lights or cafe lighting
  • Chain cord pendant for the large pendant light
  • Braided textile pendant cord for the small pendant
  • Give this pendant a vintage feel by adding an old style wooden mounting block
  • Standard Australian bayonet (B22) fitting

This pendant light takes a standard bayonet (B22) light bulb. We recommend our Quad loop round 4W LED bulb for a soft warm light or the LED Edison teardrop 8W bulb for a brighter and whiter look.
