Thank you for previewing this fixture...If you like what you see but maybe want to customize it in some way just ask.
Exposed socket design dates back to the early 1900's. When simple pendant lighting was the norm and wall switches were well....not invented yet. I love using a keyed (turn knob or pull chain) style socket with a lot of my designs. It harkens back to an earlier time when things were simple and beautiful. Using this exposed socket design allows me to create a feel that will fit in all styles of living while giving a nod to a time gone by.
To me much of the timeless beauty of a quality fixture has to do with the look, feel and quality of the wire used in its design. Back in the early 1900’s Silk and cotton were commonly used to braid wire. The wire I use is a reproduction of this beautiful period wiring made right here in the USA.
** About this particular shade… This is vintage mercury glass - or X-Ray glass as it is sometimes referred to. If your not familiar with this style glass...you should be...as it likely lit up display windows of the old department stores we all grew up shopping in. You can see the inside is a mirrored finish that back in the day (and still does) helps illuminate a lower wattage bulb to a larger area. This style glass is getting increasingly hard to find but it so very great as a display style pendant.
NOTE: This is vintage glass and wear and tear should be expected. The photos detail the wear and tear well. Wear and tear could include fading, paint splatter, finish inconsistencies etc.
