An unusual antique Holophane hanging light fitting with double prismatic glass shades and original mounts and fittings. English 1940s.
All taken apart, cleaned and resprayed in original colour. No damage to glass shades, both of which are imprinted with; HOLOPHANE MADE IN ENGLAND.
Two new brass Edison screw lampholders have been mounted for perfect positioning of a medium to large bulb for best light output. In this case two opal glass bulbs have been used (easily available).
Although the two bulbs used in the photos are bright (100watt equivalent each) there is no glare when you look sideways on at the shades - the prismatic glass gives a good even diffusion.
Rewired with 2.5 meters "elephant grey" fabric flex. Chain and ceiling plates can be supplied if required.
Dimensions in inches/cms;
28.5"/72.5cm max width at base.
14"/36cm max depth at base.
16"/41cm max height including hooks.
12"/31cm max width of each shade.


  • H: 41cm (16.14in)

Edward Haes has been dealing in architectural elements and antiques for the past 20 years, initially sourcing most of his stock from disused public buildings and demolition sites.  Some of his architectural pieces can be found on The Hoarde.

He enjoyed the social history of these places and wishes all his later purchases could have the same perfect provenance.

He continues to buy a diverse range of antiques, with a speciality in lighting, mainly from the UK and sells to dealers, commercial and private clients. He is happy to “tune in” to customers projects and help advise on selecting  the correct pieces.  You can also find some of Haes other items on the Decorative Collective website as well.

Viewings are welcome by appointment only.
