Evocative of traditional lighting fixtures, the Marathon’s shallow bowl shade offers a versatile aesthetic. Thanks to the design’s simplicity, it complements today’s most popular styles. As an accent piece, the Marathon subtly elevates a room’s overall appearance. However, with its compact mounting, this shade also can also function as the main focal point of tight, undersized areas.
Manufactured by hand, the Marathon demonstrates the high-quality construction expected ofAmerican made lighting. An abundance of finish options — including our signature porcelain, elegant copper or brass, and colorful powder coat — give the Marathon a unique, personalized style.
Hand built with an American made RLM warehouse shade, this quality industrial pendant is a lasting flush mount option.

Copper & Brass
For oil-rubbed copper, weathered copper and brass finishes, slight variations may occur from shade to shade.
Copper and brass fixtures have a longer lead time and may take up to 4 weeks to manufacture. There are no returns accepted on these metals.
Copper is a "living" metal that, without regular cleaning, will undergo a natural weathering process. Much like the formation of rust on iron, a patina develops on copper which actually protects the metal. If you prefer the new-penny look of copper, you can keep it shiny with regular care with a gentle cleaning agent such as Bar Keeper's Friend.
Porcelain enamel, our signature finish, is celebrated for its protective properties and unique, high-gloss surface. Every porcelain shade is fired in a special oven. To relieve the pressure that builds up in these high temperatures, one or more vent holes are included in the shade's design. The hole(s) are later sealed with silicon to prevent any chance of moisture intrusion that could damage the shade.
All fixtures undergo a strict quality control evaluation to ensure they meet our high standards; however, some minor blemishes may occur due to our hands-on construction and manufacturing processes. These blemishes do not affect the functionality of the fixture.

Finish Care & Maintenance
No metal fixture, no matter the finish, is guaranteed against corrosion especially in salt air environments. If your fixture is installed in a location near salt water, we recommend cleaning it frequently.
If your fixture is not installed in a location near salt water, we recommend periodic cleaning with a mild soap-and-water wash and gentle buffing to extend the life of our painted finishes.
