1905 Early Electric brass pendant


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this stunning circa-1905 Early Electric ceiling pendant! 

For most of the 19th-century, people lighted their homes with gas. Then, late in the century, gas/electric combination fixtures became available. In the late 1890s, all-electric fixtures began emerging. So, this beauty is from the first generation of revolutionary lighting.

And so gorgeous! I love just staring at it.

If you have a home built in the late 1890s, or during the 1910s, this fixture would be ideal.

The fixture is all brass, and was polished before I purchased it. The wiring is new.

The shades are equally gorgeous, and by Magian.

The fixture hangs down 23-inches, and is almost 24-inches wide. I can adjust the length up/down; just let me know.

NOTE: The ceiling canopy is just shy of 4-inches wide. This will cover older electrical boxes, but not quite newer boxes. I can supply a flat ring which will compensate; just let me know!

This fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts standard base 60W bulbs (not included).

COLOR: Brass.

SIZE: See above. As well, the shades have 2-1/4-inch fitters.


  • The only issue are some minor chips to the ribs of the shades. I only noticed when washing the shades.
  • The turn-key sockets are original (and in fine shape) with new wiring and paper insulators.

SHIPPING: Insured shipping in the Continental US will be…FREE!
