Bead Chain Ceiling Shade & Fixture - Forget-me-not
Bead Chain fixtures were the standard ceiling fixture of the American home from the 1920ís through the 1940ís. The decorative glass shade hung from 3 bead chains, and could be adjusted up or down depending on the size of the room and height of the ceiling. The graceful Art Deco design of these fixtures makes them the perfect fit in today's homes.
This vintage 10 inch glass shade is very similar to patterns produced by MacBeth Evans during the Depression, with the same pie crust edge that is found on many of their dinnerware lines. The shade is a honey-yellow color with a crystal edge and raised forget-me-not flowers. The outer surface of this shade is glossy, not matte. Price includes both the shade and the mounting hardware in your choice of brushed & lacquered brass or brushed steel. (The steel can be left natural or painted to match your decor.) The bead chains are 6" long so the entire fixture has an adjustable drop from 10 to 16 inches. Make sure to specify which mounting hardware you'd like.
Please note: while the glass shade dates to the 1920's - 40's, the mounting hardware is new.
