1 in stock
I’m very pleased to offer this extraordinary ceiling fixture by the famous Porcelier Company!
For many decades, Porcelier made some of the finest lighting fixtures and house wares (they closed in the 1950s). There’s a book on their work:

I have sold a LOT of Porcelier over the years but never this fixture. Indeed, I have never even seen this fixture before!
And what a knock-out!
The ceiling mount is porcelain!
The golden shade is glass!
Under the shade is a porcelain flourish!
And the original finial is also way cool!
Just incredible. I love that all the original components are still present, particularly the porcelain flourish under the shade. I am crazy for such details.
Each porcelain piece feature brilliant gold accents. I believe the gold is real gold.
The fixture is scaled for a foyer or bedroom. The ceiling mount is 12-1/2-inches wide. The shade is 11-wide. The height is 6-1/2-inches.
For a long time I’ve had a dream. One day (cue dramatic music) a buyer will contact me. They, too, love love love Porcelier, and wonder if their whole house could be filled with nothing but Porcelier fixtures. I gasp! And reply: Why yes! Please just click here: PORCELIER
Wholly restored and with new wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!
DETAILS: The fixture accepts three standard base 60W bulbs (not included).
COLOR: Off white. Gold.
SIZE: See above.
- I love writing this: there’s no damage.
- The gold on the ceiling mount is worn at the tips. I thought this was an original effect, but close examination indicates that this is age-related.
- The sockets are original with new wiring.
