Holophane Hanger Light



A hanging light used in an aircraft hanger produced by Holophane. Polished aluminum exterior with the Holophane trademark prismatic pressed glass interior. Rewired for domestic electricity. Several available. The hallmark of Holophane luminaires, or lighting fixtures, is the borosilicate glass reflector/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/reflector, called "Holophane" or "Holophane style/type" is iconic in "vintage" style lighting, and is licensed and copied throughout the lighting industry. Holophane was founded in 1898 in London, England.
