I LOVE the school house lights - one of my favorite things in the house - glad you like them too! My inspiration for these was Russ and Daughters in NYC - a delicious, early 1920's Jewish deli that specializes in smoked salmon. Here's a photo from my iphone (bad quality b/c it was packed and I forgot to take the photo inside originally so snapped it outside after I left).

My school house lights are antiques, but from a local antique guy that has loads of them and can do them any way you want them. The flushmount (above the piano) was ~$120 and the hanging schoolhouse lights on a rod are $175. Doing the hanging ones on a chain vs a rod is slightly cheaper (~$135 if memory serves?).

You could call Ben to see if he would ship (I assume he would but have never asked since it's ~4 blocks from my house). Here is his website:
