Semi-Flush Mount with Holophane Shade, c1905 Item # R2269
This fixture-and-shade combination is like a double bonus for antique aficionados: an adorable and unusual light with an original marked Holophane shade. The fixture features a double-loop construction that a) enables it to hang straight on angled ceilings, and b) gives it little more drop, which in turn makes it ideal for a room that wants something fancy but doesn't have the space for a large pendant or chandelier. It also features its original finish, waxed for protection and luster.
The fluted shade was manufactured by Holophane, the most famous maker of prismatic glass shades. Pretty as they are, prismatic shades were designed according to scientific principles, with each prism adjoining the next at the precise angle that reflects the most light (a true help when the only bulbs were quite dim).
