Large old, 1930s or 1940s vintage, industrial Holophane ceiling light with an industrial steel fixture, a prismatic glass shade and a protective wire safety cage. The vintage light fixture still has the remains of the original Holophane label with a US patent number from 1935 and the original Holophane glass shade.
This light fixture measures about 12" high (14" high overall) and 14" across the steel rim on the glass shade (about 16 1/4" across the wire safety cage. This industrial light fixture has a large mogul light socket (the larger size as is used in industrial installations, shop lights, porch lights etc) , but it has been fitted with an adaptor so that this lamp is ready to take a standard size light bulb (incandescent, compact florescent etc.) . This style of vintage industrial light could be easily converted into a pendant light by replacing the top fitting with a length of electrical conduit.
This is in excellent vintage condition. We have a second matching of these lights available.
