Big and awesome best describes this rare old beauty. We have restored thousands of vintage industrial lights, and have never before come across one like very special fixture. Its rich colbalt blue porcelain is still shiny and vibrant -- a real eye-catcher. The shade portion of the fixture actually consists of three separate cobalt-blue porcelain components: the large, 18" diameter "saucer, the neck, and a cap that goes over venting holes in the top of the neck. The original, heavy-duty porcelain socket is also in amazing condition; it is sized for mogul bulbs and we are including a medium-base adapter so you can use any the typical, household size bulb in LED, CFL, or incandescent -- we especially love the look of this lamp with a commonly available "Edison" type vintage bulb like the one shown in the photos.The fixture has been completely disassembled, refurbished, rewired, and outfitted with an 11" vintage iron down pipe and vintage swiveling "Quad brand ceiling hanger, making it complete and ready to hang. Guaranteed to work perfectly We include 3' of new wire, giving you plenty of flexibility in how far the fixture hangs from your ceiling (you can simply swap out the provided down pipe with a 1/2 iron pipe available in any length from any hardware store).
The swiveling or "flexible fixture" ceiling hanger pivots in all directions so the fixture always hangs plumb, while providing a little "give" should it be accidentally bumped. To the lower 48 states. Diameter of fixture at outer rim of shade: 18. Height of fixture only: 10. Height of fixture with supplied 11" down pipe and ceiling hanger: 22".
Weight (with supplied down rod): 6.75 lbs. Bulb shown in photos (not incl): Edison type incandescent, medium base.Refurbished to the highest standards. We carefully disassemble each fixture down to the smallest screw, then refurbish each part. For example, all electrical contact surfaces are cleaned and restored, threaded surfaces are "chased" with taps and dies, and lubricants applied sparingly where needed. We keep the fixtures fully original, only replacing parts when corrosion or safety concerns dictate a new part, such as a new stainless steel screw in place of an old rusted one, or a new, nitrile rubber-cork gasket in place of an old asbestos one. Each fixture is rewired and ready to hang.
Restored and preserved to retain their natural and intrinsic vintage look. We don't "wring the romance" from fixtures by excessively removing all traces of patina. Instead, metal surfaces are cleaned lightly but completely while preserving the natural patina gained over decades. The parts may be treated to retain the patina and prevent future corrosion. Porcelain surfaces are cleaned gently but thoroughly.Tested and guaranteed to work perfectly. Before any fixture leaves our workshop it is tested to ensure it works properly. Please check our flawless feedback. That's because we use plenty of quality packing materials, and know through years of experience how to pack properly.
