Soon after Thomas Edison developed the incandescent light bulb in 1879, the “schoolhouse” glass shade was adapted as the almost universal diffuser for hanging lights. This shape of glass was found in classrooms, offices, hospitals and anywhere a diffuse electric light source was needed.
Period Arts has developed this new fan to capture some of this nostalgia but with a thoroughly modern product. The glass on the Schoolhouse Fan is fully incorporated onto the body unifying the form rather than hanging as a light kit from the bottom of a conventional fan. The Schoolhouse Fan is simple yet traditional, perfect for your historical home.
Rubbed Bronze finish with opal shade. Lamping options include incandescent and energy-saving compact fluorescent.
