Do you have a hallway/ front porch ceiling globe that needs replacing? This one is a great looking update for a dull, uninspired light and is easy to install. It dates from the 1920s/1930s and has no cracks or blemishes. I would call this a school house lamp, but a deco era school house lamp. It could be hung as a pendant with the right chain and bulb hardware, so it's versatile. The way it installs as a ceiling lamp is into a cowl style collar, the type that has 3 or 4 set screws around the perimeter. The size of your fixture needs to be 6-1/4 to 6-1/2" across the neck; the overall diameter of the opening needs to be 6-3/4" diameter (the screws will tighten to 6-1/4"). I used this in a hallway for years , and it fit the fixture perfectly (it was a 1940s citing mount fixture). I am pretty sure this is a standard size, but please check your fixture before you buy it. The overall height is 12"; the length/width is 10" on each facet. Excellent vintage condition with minor wear. Located in W'Burg near the L at Lorimer or Montrose; the G at Broadway, and the M at Lorimer Street. I am around many days and evenings. Cash is preferred.
