Pan Fixture with Prismatic Cone Shades Item # R2271
Colonial and Classical Revival style lighting often includes pan fixtures. Most are decorative, with shapely finials, scrolled arms, and the like. This antique eschews all that foofaraw, which tells us it may have been used in an industrial application. The other clue: turnkeys on the sockets [AG, STILL OPERABLE?], which "fancy" lighting typically din't include. The clincher? Prismatic shades. As pretty as they are, prismatic shades were scientifically designed to reflect the most light, thus amplifying the dim glow of early bulbs.That made them especially helpful in functional settings. QED.
