Semi-indirect bowl fixtures (some light diffused down, some light reflected up) were all the rage for dining rooms between 1910 and 1920, and rarely were they done better or more substantially than when the shade was made of heavy, semi-opaque cast glass like this example. Sometimes called "camphor glass" or Moonstone, this type of glass was whiter and more opaque than frosted or etch clear glass, but warmer and more translucent than white or opal glass. Cast in highly detailed molds, this glass had the same permanence and substance that the Classical Revival sought to embody in all of its aspects.
