Rare 1915 Three-Piece Holophane Pendants

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

We love Holophane lamps because of the wonderful light they project. The glass is all prismatic and designed to get the most out of a bulb. These are one of the companies earliest designs. The shade has three pieces. The two larger parts are held together with four filigree snap on clips. Easy to clean! The 3rd part is the small bottom dome insert. The bottom piece is removable so you can easily change the bulb. That bottom dome is always missing or broken and that is what makes this complete lamp so special. With all the prismatic glass in place you get a nice decorative enclosed fixture. These early elegant shades are very difficult to find complete. We have not had a collection of these early Holophanes for years.
