These might work for you - they originally came out of a fake vent hood I had in the kitchen of my house (built in 1964 so not too far off from your house) - I have 3. They're made of copper-coated aluminum with glass inserts. I didn't keep the fixture, but it was your typical el cheapo fixture with two small flat extensions for the screws to mount to. Light is about 4.5" tall and 6" in diameter with piercings. I haven't tried to clean them but would imagine they would clean off with little effort, or you can clean off all the copper to make them aluminum-colored. Sure it might take a little effort to get them working but I'll leave it to you if you want them. Let me know if you're interested and I'll ship them off to you.
