Rescued from an old warehouse in rural Sandwich IL., these lights ALL have a bit of patina (chips) and character (other imperfections).THIS LISTING IS COMPRISED OF LIGHTS THAT DID NOT QUITE MAKE "A" GRADE.
The rolled and sealed lower rim has a wonderful black band baked right into the porcelain. Thesewere among the highest priced green standard bowl reflectors when originally manufactured in the 1920's - 1940's. They were engineered to be upper-end and theytrulyare.
In order to allow the light to function as designed, I've added a 2 inch machined aluminum extension to the original Benjamin socket fitter. This allows the bulb to extend an additional 2 inches into the shade for better illumination. Today's bulbs are far shorter than they were when this light was manufactured. The extension is also perfect for the use of LED bulbs. (Don't let your bulbs get lost in the neck). The beautiful original Benjamin sockets are mogul base. I will include an easilyremovableadapter to make the socket accept standard medium base household bulbs. And last but not least, the machined extension is designed to provide a good, solid ground, my commercial and safety consciousbuyers LOVE this option....pass your inspections!!
This listing is comprised of lights that are cosmetically less than perfect, not quite "A" grade...these are "B's". Expected patina might include edge roughness, small chips either on the green top, the white bottom or both.The white bottoms of these lights are free from all but the small chips. It would be hard to distinguishthese from the more expensive A's when mounted. If you're looking for perfection, these are not for you. If you like your lights to look as if they've served but weren't too abused, these are perfect for you!
The diameter of the shade is 18 inches. From the bottom of the shade to the point that the down-rod screws in is 12". The complete light is 19" tall.The newer down-rods are 6" long. Other rod lengths available for the asking are 3" and 12".If no other choices are specified during checkout or an email soon after, the lights will ship with 6" down-rods.
The newer UL listed swivel hangers allow the lights to hang plumb, (vertical)even if your ceiling is not level, (horizontal) and also allows the lights to resist damage from accidental, (or purposeful), bumps and bruises.
In order to safely ship the lights, they will be disassembled, to be easily reassembled by the buyer.
Please feel free to ask questions prior to offerding.
I'm a very fast and careful shipper. These lights will be packed very well.
