Before we started our kitchen renovation, most of the light was provided by one ceiling fixture. With the new layout (we removed a built-in bench that the POs installed in the 1990's and replaced it with countertops), we'd like to put an additional ceiling fixture in. We like the fixture that was there, so we'd like to find something that will complement it. Here's a picture of the fixture:
I'm not sure if it's original to the house; most of the other fixtures in the house are original, including some beautiful wall sconces and a ceiling fixture with iridescent glass shades. The center cap of this fixture has "Lightolier 6130" stamped on the inside. The wiring is quite brittle — I'll be replacing the sockets and wiring before it's reinstalled (the electricians removed it to run wire to the new fixture location, and refused to reinstall it when they saw the condition of the wiring).
The kitchen was originally split into two rooms: the original kitchen and a butler's pantry (complete with staircase directly to the maid's quarters). This fixture looks less decorative than other fixtures in the house, which would make sense, as the kitchen wasn't meant to be seen by guests.
Any suggestions on fixtures to complement it? Originally, I was hoping to find an identical fixture from a salvage or antiques source, but that seems unlikely; I'm also starting to think that a different fixture (in a similar style) would be more interesting, anyways.
