Despite being first introduced in the early 20th century, glass schoolhouse shades remain fashionable to this day. These fixtures first gained prominence in public spaces — such as hospitals, courthouses, and government offices — but now give residential settings a classic sense of character. Modern designers use schoolhouse chandeliers to spotlight dining room tables and kitchen islands in residential applications. In commercial venues, these lights are incorporated as dynamic focal points to define the space.
This particular chandelier hangs two shades from an industrial-quality mounting. The mounting is available with your choice of powdercoat color, copper or brass, and a clear or opaque shades can be selected. Hand-painted stripes are available to complete the shade’s look, elevating the shade’s charms!Glass Sizes:
Please Note: No metal fixture, no matter the finish, is guaranteed against corrosion especially in salt air environments. If your fixtures will be installed in a location near salt water or with extreme weather conditions, we recommend routine and careful maintenance of your lighting including a mild soap-and-water wash and gentle buffing to help maintain the finish.
For copper and brass, the optional finishes are applied by hand, meaning slight variations may occur from shade to shade. Due to atmospheric conditions during the manufacturing process, additional discrepancies from the photos shown above are possible.
Schoolhouse globes are best cleaned with a damp, soft cloth. To protect the glass and painted bands, avoid alcohol-based and abrasive cleaners. Instead, we recommend the following alcohol-free soaps and cleaners: 409, Windex, Dawn Dish Soap, Simple Green, and Mr. Clean Multi-Surface.
