This historic bowl pendant is part of a family of fixtures Crenshaw created for the U. S. Supreme Court Modernization project in 2005. This was one of two basic bowl designs which were replicated in varying suspension lengths and configurations across hundreds of fixtures built for the court. The fixtures provided energy efficient lighting, and improved light levels, all with an historic fixture design in keeping with the court’s Neo-Classical aesthetic. This is the simpler of the two styles, with a frosted white acrylic bowl lens, smooth trim ring with subtle profiling and floral applique, a reeded suspension stem, and cast egg-and-dart canopy. The finish, however, is exceptional: an ultra-fine, silk satin brass with an exacting color specification. The smaller bowl size and acrylic lens necessitated a lamping reduction from that of the larger design (see 3726-PBC2) but this fixture still delivers basic bowl illumination, a covered bowl, and high-powered compact fluorescent uplighting.
