Typical of functional lighting of the early 20th century, this simple twisted cloth-cord pendant is paired with a sweet flared Gill prismatic shade, designed to distribute the dim light of carbon and early tungsten bulbs as efficiently as possible. Softer lines and occasional “zipper cut” ribs give a more casual feel to this shade compared to its sharper and more scientific Holophane cousins. You can see the beautiful refraction of the carbon-filament bulb in the ribs and zipper cuts of the glass, which is just how it would have looked over 100 years ago.
