$225.00 includes shade & original mounting fixture

Bead Chain fixtures were the standard ceiling fixture of the American home from the 1920’s through the 1940’s. The decorative glass shade hung from 3 bead chains, and could be adjusted up or down depending on the size of the room and height of the ceiling. The graceful Art Deco design of these fixtures makes them the perfect fit in today's homes.

This vintage 11 1/2 inch glass shade is a combination of copper colored metal and custard glass. There is a pattern of raised rings around the edge of the metal and in the center of the glass. This shade also has its original ceiling mount that has the same rings around the edge. The ceiling shade mount is all original and sold as is with the original wiring and socket intact. (Should be rewired before being used.) There is also some old paint on the edge that the new owner might want to clean off before hanging. I have left it as found. Price includes both the shade and the mounting hardware. The bead chains are 6" long so the entire fixture has an adjustable drop from 10 to 16 inches.
