Vintage Wrought Iron Indoor Outdoor Lantern Light Fixture c1950
A wonderful Vintage Wrought Iron Indoor Outdoor Lantern Light Fixture c1950. This is a super piece of decorative lighting that would go with many vintage styles: Craftsman Home, Arts and Crafts, Mission and Cottage Vintage.
The fixture stands 10 1/2" tall and will protrude about 7" from the wall. The fixture measures 4 1/2" across the bottom with a 3 1/4" opening to reach the socket. It takes a standard size bulb. This type of fixture requires direct wiring to your outlet and does not have a plug. It would be turned on and off by your wall switch. It has it's original cloth covered wiring.
The globe is a faux granite glass which we really like. It is made from a heavy plastic, lucite-like material so it will not break or chip. We've had many of these where inside globes get chipped and damaged from age. This one will not break on you and it looks wonderful. There is no physical damage to the fixture ie; dings, dents or oxidation. The lighter spots you see in the photos are where the paint has chipped with age. This is what we would expect to see from a true vintage fixture over 65 years old. It can easily be sprayed with Rustoleum or hand painted.
