These are circa 1948 Homart (Sears) time capsules!
These porch lights are 100% original except the wires, which we've changed for safety purposes. The fixtures are in very good condition for their age, and show minor signs of rust and age. We rarely see porch fixtures this old, this nice, and consider them excellent candidates for a restoration or to use as they are. The one piece glass shade is a very novel contemporary design that would fit nicely with a traditional MCM home renovation or restoration, or better yet, add them to your 1940's Sears home!
Homart was the Sears & Roebuck Co. brand that included tools, household items, hardware, paint, etc. beginning in the post WWII era. Looking back at vintage Sears catalogs shows Homart products throughout.
This fixture has been tested by our staff and is in working condition.
Each light uses one standard (E26) base light bulb. Community Forklift recommends LED light bulbs to save energy and reduce damage to modern and vintage lighting from heat and UV light of traditional bulbs.
