Back in the day, Benjamin Manufacturing certainly knew how to make super-cool explosion-proof light fixtures. Here's one of the coolest, from the 1950s, rewired, and totally reconditioned to be super awesome wherever you need it. These things are built like tanks, primarily with heavy aluminum castings, all in excellent condition, and sure to last many more decades.Changing light bulbs is quick and easy: simply unscrew the cage/globe assembly from the main housing (see 4th photo). This listing begins with 4 fixtures, priced individually. Each includes a vintage Benjamin swiveling ceiling hanger (also in superb condition) and vintage down pipe to complete its all-old-school Benjamin presentation. The swiveling hanger allows the fixture to hang plumb, even on a sloped ceiling or from a junction box that's not level.
It also gives the fixture some give should it be accidentally bumped. We include 3' of wire with each fixture to give you flexibility in how far they hang (even more wire can be readily added). Each lamp has its original heavy-duty socket (also in like-new condition) that accepts any regular household bulb. We especially like how this fixture looks with vintage-style Edison bulbs like the one shown in the photo. If you have any questions, feel free to ask; we LOVE our customers!Overall diameter at widest point: 6. Height (with included ceiling hanger and 6" pipe): 18.5". Weight (each): 7.3 pounds. Light bulb shown in photos: Medium-base, Edison type. Refurbished to the highest standards. We carefully disassemble each fixture down to the smallest screw, then refurbish each part. For example, all electrical contact surfaces are cleaned and restored, threaded surfaces are "chased" with taps and dies if necessary, and lubricants applied sparingly where needed. Worn or unsafe (asbestos) gaskets are replaced with new, safe gaskets. We keep the fixtures fully original, only replacing parts when corrosion or safety concerns dictate a new part, such as a new stainless steel screw in place of an old rusted one. Each fixture is rewired and ready to hang. Restored and preserved to retain their natural and intrinsic vintage look. We don't "wring the romance" from fixtures by excessively removing all traces of patina. Instead, metal surfaces are cleaned gently but completely while preserving the natural patina gained over decades.
The parts are then treated to retain the patina and prevent future corrosion as necessary. Porcelain surfaces are cleaned gently and thoroughly, then buffed to restore their original luster as necessary. Tested and guaranteed to work perfectly. Before any fixture leaves our workshop it is tested to ensure it works properly.
