1930s Moderne hall fixture


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer this striking 1930s Moderne ceiling fixture!

Moderne is an aesthetic that developed after the Art Deco period. This aesthetic was relatively short lived, and reached the height of its popularity in the late 1930s. Emerald City, in the movie Wizard of Oz, is Moderne gone Hollywood. Many lighting fixtures labeled Art Deco are more accurately Moderne.
You would think that such a high-style fixture would only look right in a high-style Moderne interior. But, very few homes in the 1930s were as such. Very few. So why did lighting manufacturers nonetheless pump out high-style fixtures? Because home-owners, no matter how traditional their home décor, craved modern, up-to-date lighting (hugely influenced by Hollywood movies). Lights such as this were seen as fresh, with élan, and not what your mother had!

The fixture is black, gold, and silver.

Scale-wise, the fixture is suited for a mislay entry, hall, or closet.

Wholly restored and with new wiring, this fixture is ready to hang, and comes with all the mounting hardware needed!

DETAILS: The fixture accepts one standard base 75W bulb (not included).
COLOR: See above.
SIZE: The fixture is 10-1/4-inches wide. The height is 3-inches (without bulb).

  • The socket is original with new wiring.
  • The black and silver have been refinished.
