Japanned Copper Chandelier w/ Holophane Shades C1910 Item # R2538
Large and simple multi-arm fixtures using carbon-filament light bulbs like this one were extremely common in commercial and institutional settings between 1900 and 1910 - but most were replaced in the decades that followed by the newer - and much brighter - tungsten-filament bulb. Rendered obsolete and out-of-style, such elegant early electric fixtures were frequently scrapped and forgotten. This lovely specimen survives to remind us of the days before "schoolhouse" lights and fluorescent fixtures took over our stores, schools, factories and warehouses. We've honored this survivor, which boasts an incredible japanned copper finish, with a remarkable set of "bumble bee" prismatic shades. The shades are a history lesson in and of themselves, as the bulbous, faceted forms were specially designed to light commercial and municipal spaces of this period.
