18 Abolite Cobalt Blue Porcelain Light Fixture Shade Industrial Barn vtg One B. These Abolite 18 Lights were rescued from the old Liberty Motor Plant near Indianapolis IN.
These all have some chips or rust on the edges, rust and a larger chip or two as shown. These are considered to be B or B- grade. Manufactured circa 1920'by Abolite. Back when these lights were manufactured, blue porcelain shades were far more expensive to produce than their white or green counterparts, thus they cost substantially more. So much more in fact, people rarely bought them.
This resulted in fewer being produced, fewer surviving and higher cost for the ones that did. This one happens to be even more rare.
It has a flat shade that allows the bulb to light in all directions instead of straight down or a little off to the sides. I've never had another like it.
For those of you looking for perfection, this light is probably not for you. If you want your light to look vintage and perform like new, then you found your light! The swivel hanger will allow the light to hang plumb even from a ceiling that is not level. It also helps protects the lights from bumps and bruises if struck.
The length of the wire will accommodate up to a 36 inch rod. I will include the wire-nuts, might save you a trip to the hardware store! All electrical items should be checked and installed by a professional electrician. I'm a very fast and careful shipper.
These lights will be packed very well. Thank you for visiting the original.
