Description

You can almost hear it swishing back and forth, can't you? While its sense of movement seems magical, this glass shade owes its shape-shifting quality to science. The angle of each prism precisely calculated to reflect the most light, thus amplifying the dim glow of early bulbs. Indeed, some early manufacturers claimed that shades like this could actually double the candlepower of a lamp.

Called a "prism hood," this type of shade was designed to hang directly on the neck of the light bulb – no shade holder required. And while the shade thus takes center stage, it also means not all modern bulbs will fit. We recommend the 60W Victorian carbon-filament bulb, sold separately.

Shown on our Burnside fixture and with the bulb that will work best, both sold separately.
