Vintage Recreated Glass Holophane Shade 4

0601G  Vintage Reproduction Glass Holophane or Prismatic Shade with 4" Fitter

Holophane glass shade acts as a reflector and refractor.  The glass provides an even uplight and downlight that illuminates without creating dark spots or glare.  Used on sconces, chandeliers, lamps, or newel post fixtures.

Shade Measurements:

  • Height:  5"
  • Diameter:  8"
  • Fitter Size:  4"

This simple shade works well with lights between 1896 - 1940.  It blends well with Art Deco, Arts & Crafts, Mission, and Art Nouveau settings, allowing the focus to be on the fixture rather than the shade. 

Holophane History

This ribbed glass shade, called "Holophane" or "Holophane style" is iconic in vintage style lighting.  Early electric bulbs were not a high wattage, and it was necessary to get every bit of light possible out of the bulb.
