Description

This flush mount fixture measures 14" at the longest point and 11 1/2" x 7 1/2" at the base. Marked Moe Bridges Co 39108 on the back - see pic 5. Just a fyi - this piece weighs in at .999kg (2.2046 lbs)

The original cloth covered wiring has been snipped off and restoration is likely possible if one is able to replace the very old sockets. There is a finial missing from the center and that too can likely be replaced from a lighting parts store. I am not an electrician and I am only assuming this, as in our area we have a lighting parts store that has had any electrical part we have ever needed to restore old lighting. If I were to keep this fixture, I would consider it for a candle holder or simply as a decor piece, possibly on a mantle; keeping company with several other old beautiful chippy treasuries.

Brothers Henrik and Ole Moe helped found the Milwaukee based Moe-Bridges Company in 1919. Eventual friction among shareholders resulted in the brothers leaving the company in the late 20s. The Moe-Bridges Company continued however. In 1943, the company was renamed The Lighthouse and in 1963, renamed Visa Lighting. Visa Lighting is still in existence today. Moe-Bridges fixtures are of a quality mostly unknown today, and you will frequently find Moe-Bridges fixtures that have been restored.
