Watery Prism Hood Shade R2292, c. 1900 Item # R2292
This one-of-a-kind antique seems to twirl and swirl like water, but it's actually made of sand – and science. Made of prismatic glass, each angle was scientifically designed 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.
- Note: Shown on our Burnside fixture (A2340) and with our 60W Victorian Carbon-filament Bulb (C5494), both sold separately
- Historical Style: Period Basic
