Here is the rare, whimsical, airplane art deco ceiling light fixture I have in my bedroom, circa 1930-1940. It was designed by Moe Brothers in Chicago, and when I bought it, it came in it's original box and was probably never installed before. It's also shown in Jim Linz's "Art Deco Chrome" book. Three chrome airplanes circle the white glass globe on a red enameled band. There's also a chrome propeller below the light globe and the base is fluted chrome. I always get a lot of compliments on this fixture from visitors at my home because it's so fun and unique!

    That's really cool. And to have it in that great condition is awesome. Enjoy!

    It must be HUGE ! how big around is the light ? I LOVE IT but you'd need the right place to put it.

    Thanks. Actually, it's not that large. It's about 12" wide and about 5" deep...probably about the size of any standard ceiling fixture. The pics probably make it look larger than it is.

    Great light fixture, can't believe you found it in the box! I have the same one outside my master bedroom in the hall. Love the chrome airplanes - goes great with my DC-3 smoking stand too.

    Yeah, I've saved the box for potential resale in the future. There's one of these up for sale on Ebay currently (without a box), and I'm curious to see how much it sells for.

    Running over to eBay to find this right now. LOVE this light.

    Absolutely love it! How cool to have the airplanes around the light like they are coming in for a landing:)
