18 MAXOLITE Cobalt Blue Porcelain Light Fixture Shade Industrial Barn vtg One B. 18 Cobalt Blue, dated 1918, 100 years old. 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. These shades also have a rare ventilated top to allow heat to escape. A side effect allows a bit of light to escape also, just beautiful. For those of you looking for perfection, these lights are probably not for you.

ALL of these lights have imperfections or character, a chip or two, maybe a little rust etc. If you want your light to look vintage and perform like new, then you found your light! These are in B condition, A's, C's and D's will be listed soon. In order to allow the light to function as designed, I've added a 2 inch machined aluminum extension to the original socket fitter (which is dated 1918 under the cork gasket). This allows the bulb to extend an additional 2 inches into the shade for better illumination. Today's bulbs are far shorter than they were when this light was manufactured. The extension is also perfect for the use of LED bulbs. (Don't let your bulbs get lost in the neck). The original Benjaimin 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. From the ceiling to the bottom of the shades is 24.

The non-original down-rods are 11 long and black. 3" and 6" also available free of charge for the asking.

The length of the wire will accommodate up to a 36 inch rod, available at your local hardware store. 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.
