It’s Back – The Adorable Vintage Jumprope Girl Light Fixture!

Sara recently posted a great guest post on Tuesday about some vintage lighting in her stash, and I mentioned in that I loved her little jumprope girl ceiling light covers.  Imagine how surprised I was when I received this email from Tom’s mom, Ann:

Oh my!  That one with the girl jumping rope use to be in my bedroom at home and is currently hanging on one of our bedroom ceilings!  Was so strange to see it!
It is a small world!! When I asked Ann to send pictures, here is what I got!

The same light!!! Wow.

Ann writes:

Not too exciting.  Just looks like the picture you had, but thought I’d send it anyhow. We moved in 1959, so I assume that’s when I got the new light fixture.  Really liked it and was thrilled when it survived all our moves and I was able to use it in Maggie’s room.  Still there, obviously.  🙂

Excellent pics Ann, thanks!

    OK now, that is REALLLY weird! Tom’s Mom has the exact same light shade I just found??? How cool is that. Good to know she thinks it is from around 1959, that is what I was kinda thinking. Thanks for the info Ann.
