A Gas J is a somewhat utilitarian fixture although we
have had some that are quite fancy. The simple ones
were often the fixtures for the Kitchens and the Servants
Quarters. They were also used over Washstands on the
sides and in the corners of bedrooms.
Nowadays they make a great small hall or small room
fixture. In a bathroom with a pair of sconces, a Gas J
can make a great ceiling fixture. Three Js over
a Kitchen Island has been done.
