In our Old Stuff department we just posted a wonderful assortment of beautiful painted shades with embellished antique pendants. When I start looking through our shelves of old shades and fixtures to restore, I also take some time to look through old catalogues to see what different lighting companies were producing during different time periods. This time I was looking at pendants from the 20s and 30s when I ran across a catalogue page of an antique flush mount fixture with a painted shade and realized I had just the right components to make this fixture a reality. This page is from the 1929 Gill Glass and Fixture Company.
The original finish on the fixture I found was, unfortunately, too far gone, but our talented craftsmen were able to repaint it, beautifully and authentically. Thanks to them this is now fully restored, complete with lovely pink sparkles.
If you are looking for a pendant, the New Arrivals page of our Old Stuff Department is full of some of the most lovely painted shades from the 20s and 30s. This one is my favorite, but if you have a chance, please take a look at our other Old Stuff New Arrivals to see just how spectacular these shades (and their fixtures) are and find your own favorite.
