VTG 1920's Art Deco Light Fixture Milk Glass MacBeth Monax MidCentury Moderne. For sale is one Art Deco midcentury style milk glass light fixture with a chrome or nickle plated fitter and hanger rod.
I have several of these and all are in very good condition showing little wear. They even have the 3 set screws to attach the shades which are frequently missing. The shade is approximately 14 inches in diameter and 7 inches high. The shade takes a 6 inch fitter. Total length of the fixture from the ceiling to the bottom of the glass shade is approximately 31 1/2 inches.
Some of the shades are acid stamped "MACBETH MONAX" inside a circle with made in U. On the outside of the circle. Above MACBETH the shades are stamped U.
Jan 4 1920 (see photo). The stamp is difficult to find and I could not locate it on all the shades. It may not be present on some of the shades. The rod that attaches to the ceiling is approximately 24 3/4 inches in length. Each of the fitters will have minor imperfections due to age and use.
Examples of possible small splits on the fitter and/or a tiny dent in the canopy are shown in the photos. Overall condition for used fixtures is good and any imperfections will be difficult to see when the shades are on and the fixture is installed. There is a knob near the top of the ceiling canopy that lets you adjust the angle so the fixture will hang level or straight. This makes the fixture usable on a flat or slanted ceiing since it can be adjusted. The fitter, rod and ceiling mount are all either chrome or nickel plated.
The shades are in excellent condition - not chipped or cracked. The fixtures were removed from a turn of the century commercial building.They all have porcelain sockets and will take a standard light bulb. The wires look good, but these have not been recently re-wired. The fixtures can also be picked up if desired (90 miles west of Joplin Missouri and 90 miles north of Tulsa, Oklahoma).
