I found this in the cabinet that it is pictured near and it had a GE 40 watt bulb in it.

I didn't get a pic of it, but the bulb looked old. My guess is this fixture was installed by the builders, removed, and saved for future use without the bulb ever being taken out.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Cool light, it kind of reminds me of the shade on these kind of lights.

Was this glass painted? I normally see these glasses clear with a couple of white stripes around the side like below:

I've seen many of these in houses. The glass is nice but they don't put out much light...these actually could be cool to convert to LED as it would give them sparkle. With a frosted GLS they are kind of dull

I'm lampin...

And with LED you could use a 100 equivalent lamp where you'd use a 60W and get back the light you lost through the diffuser. And you'd still only be using 15 watts with the 100W= LED.

I would use my newly acquired 50 watt merc of course with a remote ballast.

The ones with the clear sides seem to be more common, I think they're a fairly generic design everyone made. They are still made today.

The ones with the entirely white sides seem to be on the older side. I don't know anyone that still sells those but Home Depot does sell replacement shades for them.

This is probably from the early 1970s, my grandparents' house was built in 1970.

I found one of these at an abandoned house. Got the bulb, but unfortunately not the fixture. Got an Electripak 100w MV area light too. House built in '75.

My grandparents have one of these but with the clear glass in their kitchen in front of the pantry closet. Their house is from the early 60s. My uncle has a larger two lamp version. His house is from the 60s sometime as well.

@Cole D: Will do. It's a AE DR100M but has that flat style photocell.
