Restored authentic city streetlights from 1928. One has a tag that states General Electric Novalux, and a serial number. Heavy cast iron, with new electrical for interior household use. Many layers of flaking grey lead-based enamel were removed, and now have their original black paint restored (catalog notes they came black from factory). HEAVY at around 100 pounds each, and shipping not recommended, but possible via freight. All new glass, as virtually all glass was broken and missing.
Original 1928 GE Novalux catalog pages shown, as well as photos of identical vintage fixtures outside the LA City Light street lighting facility in East Hollywood.
22" wide and 48" tall including top finial. Takes one medium base bulb. Here shown with giant size PS160 bulb, included.
Note these are 99% identical. Differences very minor.

Q: YOU ARE LISTED IN BOTH LOS ANGELES AND SEATTLE?
A: We started in Seattle but are now primarily based in Los Angeles. Items ship from both locations, depending on were it's on display.
Q: DO YOU BUY PARTIAL FIXTURES AND PARTS, OR JUST COMPLETE FIXTURES?
A: Of course we'll take a look at anything you are looking at selling, whether single shades or complete fixtures. You might have the last piece to a puzzle we need! It's rare that we're interested in items made after WWII.
Q: DO YOU RESTORE CLIENT'S FIXTURES? WHAT ABOUT REPAIR?
A: Yes. Restoration means different things depending on what each project needs. Sometimes it's cleaning and rewiring, other times (too often) it's refinishing completely. Yes, we can repair most things, from a simple rewiring a modern lamp to a plate and polish an antique chandelier. Cost varies depending on scope of project.
