I’m very pleased to offer this extraordinary opportunity:
TWO 1940s ceiling fixtures by the famous Virden Company!
The John C. Virden Company was Canadian-based, at 19 Curity Ave in Toronto. They also had a US presence at 6103 Longfellow Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. You can Google search the latter, and “stand” in front of the massive brick factory. It is now long abandoned, and its countless widows broken. But it wasn’t that long ago that this factory – like countless such factories across America – was teeming with life, and supporting millions of families. This, back when America actually made stuff.
This listing is for two fixtures:
ONE fixture with a 15-1/2-inch-wide shade!
ONE fixture with a 12-3/4-inch-wide shade!
The fixtures are from Virden’s Sheridon series.
The larger fixture is scaled for a living and dining room, while the smaller fixture is scaled for a foyer or small bedroom.
The painted aluminum shades are pierced with glass spheres and these wondrously glow when the fixtures are lighted. In the center of each shade is an intricate glass disk. Wow.
Each fixture accepts a single 200W bulb. Much of this is thrown back towards the ceiling – offering a highly diffused and flattering light quality.
The fixtures are cream and gold.
What I particularly like about the fixtures is the strong period look. They definitely make a 1940s statement!
This set will be shipped ready to hang, rewired, and with all the mounting hardware needed!
