Antique Beaded Chain Semi-Flush Ceiling Light Fixture
Many early porcelain fixtures had embossed floral motifs and elaborate designs, frequently glazed with uranium glass over off-white glazing, giving the deep reliefs a yellowish tint. They did, however, also come in various wonderful color hues. Porcelain light fixtures advanced further throughout the 1930s to the 1960s.
Manufacturers began to develop fixtures with streamlined and contemporary forms, reflecting current architectural and design trends. Furthermore, technological advances enabled mass manufacturing, making porcelain light fixtures less expensive and more accessible.
The antique semi-flush porcelain beaded chain drop-down ceiling light fixture has been rewired, cleaned, detailed, and includes installation hardware making it convenient to install.
