12 inch Vintage Holophane Shade 2 Available

Item Code: CEI20191221001
Year : 1920-1930
2 available, priced each.
These large shades are their 12 inch model at 11 7/8 inches across. The two 1/2 spheres are held together with 4 metal clips (original) and the original bottom lens is on each. The removable bottom lens is designed to easily remove and access changing the bulb. This original bottom lens is often missing, but not on these. Shown on new polished nickel fitters.
Holophane shades are known for their incredible clarity and shine. They sparkle when lit like no other, probably one reason Holophane is still in business today. They have patented prismatic ribs all along the inside and outside which softens and diffuses the harsh light produced by light bulbs, causing the refracted light to be pleasing to the eye. There are also bands of wavy rings on the inside upper third of each shade. Holophane was the industry leader on light refracting technology and each rib of glass is precisely place to disperse the light in exactly the manner wanted.
These came out of a gymnasium and can handle up to 250 watts each.
The shade itself is 9 inches high.
Drop as shown is 18 inches.
Perfect for today's modern kitchens or baths.
Shown on a new nickel pole fitter as well as the original flush mount fitter shown in the last two images. There are not as many of these flush mount fitters as there are the shades.
We have several options for mounting the shades including pole or chain hung in Nickel, Brass, or antique Brass. No additional charge for any option up to a 24 inch drop.
Rewired to UL standards and comes with a heavy duty mounting bracket (except the original flush mount fitter).
