1940s Virden surface mount ceiling fixture


1 in stock


I’m very pleased to offer a late 1940s surface-mounted ceiling fixture by Virden!

The fixture is 13-1/2-inches high, so it’s ideal for rooms with low-ish ceilings. The shade is 15-inches wide.

The fixture abounds with great details:
The wide brass ceiling canopy!
The glass stem!
The brass filigree edge on the shade!
Under the shade is a lovely glass disk!

The shade has a leaf/flower design in very pale yellow.

The fixture has three sockets, accepting a total of 240W. You can useLED bulbs.

It’s hard finding such fixtures with all their original components intact.

While first produced in the late 1940s, the fixture would have been offered through to the early 1960s.

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