The rod that attaches to the ceiling is approximately 24 3/4 inches in length.

This makes the fixture usable on a flat or slanted ceiling since it can be adjusted. In regard to condition, the fitter, rod and ceiling mount are all either chrome or nickel plated and the plate is in good condition overall. There is minimal oxidation on some that could benefit from additional cleaning and polishing.Some fixtures may have a tiny split or two in the fitter collar and/or a very small indentation near the knurl ring that tightens to adjust the slant. Since these are old vintage fixtures, these will have some minor imperfections. Amazingly none of the shades are chipped or cracked.
The fixtures were used in a turn of the century commercial building and recently removed. They all have porcelain sockets and will take a standard light bulb. They have not been recently re-wired. They could be used as multiples in a commercial application! The fixtures can also be picked up if desired (90 miles west of Joplin Missouri and 90 miles north of Tulsa, Oklahoma).
