Hmmm. Looks like Schoolhouse no longer makes this design. There is something similar at Rejuvenation. Coos Bay sconce. Good luck!

Hi, I love these, too. These were a drive by- I saw them in a showroom window, walked in and bought them for the client. I am so sorry I don't have info on them for you (and for me, I'd like to use them again sometime).

Thanks for the inquiry. This is a vintage O'Keefe and Merritt stove. This model
was special as it had a periscope type window that allowed the cook to see in without opening the door. I hope you get a great old range, they are incredible! For the look without the age try Heartland by Aga or BlueStar. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Buckminster Green LLC added this to Want Gorgeous Interior Colors? Look to the Light
Adjust bulb color with fixtures. If the color of light produced by a bulb isn't quite to your liking, you can tweak it by picking a fixture shade that changes the light, like this glass shade from Schoolhouse Electric. But know that an enclosed shade on a fixture that hangs upside down like this has limited bulb options. LED bulbs will not last as long if they're exposed to the heat buildup in an enclosed shade. CFLs don't like to hang upside down — they will work and still generally last longer than an incandescent, but you won't get the full predicted life out of them.

LIGHTING How color changes in a room. Every wall in this room is painted the same shade of gray, but look at the differences caused by the angles and placement in the room. Color also looks different under different circumstances: The day progresses and the natural light in the room changes, seasons change, a couple candles at night or all recessed lighting on full blast changes the appearance. It is worth the expense to paint samples on multiple walls before you commit to a color. The lighting in the room should be finalized too — don't look at samples with temporary bulbs hanging from pigtail lamp holders. And be sure to check the color at different times of day. A few ways to affect color through lighting: To warm up a room's color: Look for a bulb with a temperature close to 2,700 Kelvin. Halogens are a good choice, but all types of bulbs are available in warmer ratings. To cool down a room's color: Look for a bulb with a temperature close to 4,000 Kelvin. Standard fluorescents will generally cool down a room, but check the numbers. To most accurately replicate natural daylight: Midday sunlight is around 5,000 to 6,000 Kelvin, but keep in mind that this is very cool light — contrary to what you might expect.
