What type of light fixture is this?

Hi. I came across some old light fixtures. They hang by a threaded rod that is screwed into the lightbulb plate on the ceiling. Pictures are attached of the light fixture and the receptacle where the rod goes. My terminology might be wrong.

Is there a name for these fixtures? I would like to find some more online and in stores (esp that don't block the light so much), but am having trouble searching for them.

Thanks. (had to take screenshots w/ the camera, so pics are kind of weird)

Welcome to the forums.

Usually lights that hang from rod or cable are called pendant fixtures.

If you do a google search for "pendant fixtures" click on images.

That's just a simple 2 bulb ceiling fixture. The threaded stem is standard sized and can be purchased in different lengths (also can be adjusted a little).

What you're looking for is a new diffuser. Do a search for Globes/Shades, subcategory diffusers. Home stores have every kind.

The stem must be adjusted in length (height) for diffuser and secured with nuts and star washers.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the info. This is what I was looking for. I didn't know it is called a diffuser (for some reason I thought it itself is called a fixture).
