The fixture is non listed and therefore not compliant. I suspect you may get a metal switch box behind it with a bracket. Some of those oldies you have to twist the fixture to mount it.

this is what happened to the last couple houses where someone installed one of those
non compliant fixtures
Make fun-- LOL but I just quote the code. Obviously it can be rigged to be safe but if he is getting an inspection he needs to be aware

It was a fixture from long ago. There are lamp shops that will put in a 1/4" or 3/8" thread and bracket for it, then they say to use the small metal round box (3.5" I believe). You could drill it out yourself too and find a patina nut.

Obviously it's still not listed, but, well, yea, don't hang it!
