Beyond-Charming Fixture with Prismatic Shade, c1905

Item #R2294


"So cute" is about all we can say about this simple combination of small brass pendant and ruffled prismatic reflector shade. This darling little shade was made by Gillinder Franklin Glass of Philadelphia, which patented a similar design in 1905. While prismatic reflectors were engineered and marketed as highly "scientific" devices to efficiently distribute the dim light of early bulbs, many examples reveal decorative intentions like this one. Buy it for the science, or buy it for the romance – either way you can't go wrong.
