A Rare Run of Medium Holophane Three Part Pendant Lights
Price is Per Light
A stunning run of 12 vintage Holophane pendant lights reclaimed from an abandoned 150 year old chapel originally built in 1876 in the heart of Gwynedd village in Wales, Rhosgadfan Chapel was listed for sale when we spotted the lights still hanging in the images of the stripped out interior.
Made in England by Holophane in the early 1920's these lights have hung in the church for around 100 years.
Holophane's "Reflector - Refractors" were developed following the commission of the company to provide the illumination of St Pauls Cathedral, London in 1923 requiring greater glare and brightness.
As seen in our 1937 catalogue snippet the Holophane Reflector - Refractors form a series of imposing totally enclosed prismatic glassware, suitable for general lighting of Public Buildings, School, Offices and Shop interiors.
All glass has makers marks and numbers along with Holophane embossed to the brass canopy's, the pendants also include the original brass hanging chain and ceiling fittings.
WHY IS VINTAGE HOLOPHANE SO POPULAR IN INTERIOR DESIGN
In addition to its practical qualities, vintage Holophane glass is highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts of vintage and industrial design. The prismatic texture of the glass creates a unique visual effect that is both beautiful and functional, making it a popular choice for use in home decor and lighting fixtures. The vintage Holophane glass is often paired with high-quality metal fixtures, such as brass or cast iron, to create a look that is both elegant and industrial in style.
