Hanger Light by Holophane



1960s nickel-plated hanging lights formerly used to light aircraft hangers made by Holophane. Rewired for domestic electricity. Holophane is a manufacturer of lighting-related products founded in 1898 in London, England. The hallmark of Holophane luminaires, or lighting fixtures, is the borosilicate glass reflector or refractor. The glass prisms provide a combination of uplight and downlight to illuminate any environment evenly without creating dark spots or glare. This ribbed glass shade or reflector, called "Holophane" is iconic in vintage lighting.
