1920s HUGE red Duplexalite 22-wide


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this rare, and HUGE, red Duplexalite!

But what, you may ask, is a Duplexalite?

The Miller Company created a fixture they dubbed Duplexalite. I sell a number of these wonderful fixtures each year. There is a wide variety in terms of colors, patterns, and details, but each Duplexalite comprises a single 300W socket, a glass bottom shade, and a large metal shade above. The fixtures throw a lot of light UP, and thus a highly diffused, flattering light quality is the result. You can even find Duplexalites in the White House!

However, this Duplexalite is extraordinary.

First, it’s huge! The shade is a whopping 22-inches wide! I’ve never offered such a large Duplexalite, most being 16-inches wide.

Second, look at the richness! The fixture abounds with lucious details. Wow. Wow!

I love the boldly-scaled metal ornaments on the red metal shade.

The custard glass shade on the bottom is wrapped with an amazing metal cluster.

As mentioned, the fixture accepts a whopping 300W bulb (Mogul base). I can supply a socket adapter which would allow a standard-base 200W LED bulb. Just let me know!

The fixture is now 44-inches long (and 22-wide). I can remove one 2-1/4-inch chain link. I can add links.

So, if you’ve been looking for a truly knock-out ceiling fixture, this Duplexalite may be ideal!

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

DETAILS: The fixture accepts one Mogul-base 300W bulb (not included). I can include a standard-base adapter, thus allowing the use of a 200W LED bulb.

COLOR: Red. Brass. Gold.

SIZE: See above.


  • I love writing this: there’s no damage.
  • The porcelain socket is original with new cloth wiring.
  • The finish on the metal shade had been badly overpainted. Removing this revealed no hint of the original color. I chose red as it was a popular Duplexalite color.
