Plume & Atwood Mfg. Co. Pendant w/ 2-Part Camphor Shade Item # R6396
When the tungsten-filament light bulb first became commercially popular around 1910, it was so much brighter than the carbon-filament bulbs that preceded it - almost three times brighter - that designers had to come up with new types of shades in new types of glass to reduce glare and properly distribute the light. One early technique was a semi-opaque 2-part shade system like this example, which hid the bulb from direct view while both diffusing the light through the lower bowl and reflecting it via the upper shade. Such fixtures were common in commercial environments, and were also occasionally used in more functional residential settings. Today, they have an absolutely unique look.
- Historical Style: Classic
