This is a fixture that was found in an old shed a couple days ago. It looks like in old vanity fixture. It has a pull-chain, two prong polarized outlet, socket and shade. It is wired but it might need to be replaced before powering it.

This picture shows the fixture and the shade.

Nice find! I have this same fixture but without the shade , think these were designed for wall mounting above bathroom mirrors. This fixture is made by Paulding, not sure what happened to this company, last time I saw any new wiring devices by them was in the mid 1980's. This company was big on making a lot of those 4 inch round porcelain ceiling sockets with a pull chain switch or in keyless, followed by Leviton, the kind of socket attached to a junction box in basements and elsewhere.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

Cool, thanks for the info. I sadly don't really have the shade either anymore. It was in a filing cabinet that was sitting on our porch, and there was a hard gust wind, and well, you can guess what happened next. Hopefully some strong glue will be able to fix it. The fixture is fine though.

That's a bummer with your shade for this getting damaged by the wind mrboojay! Hopefully it's in a few pieces that can be glued with goo glue for glass.
