Holophane Glass dates back to the late 19th century when it was first developed by a French engineer and inventor named André Blondel. In 1898, Blondel collaborated with the French glass manufacturer, Société des Verreries Mécaniques de Saint-Gobain, to develop a new type of glass that could control and distribute light more efficiently. The term "Holophane" is derived from the Greek words "holos" meaning "whole" and "phanos" meaning "light." Holophane Glass was designed with a prismatic pattern on its surface. This pattern consisted of a series of ridges, prisms, or other optical elements that manipulated the path of light passing through the glass. It allowed the glass to refract, reflect, and diffuse light in a controlled manner, producing a more uniform and pleasant illumination.

Transport yourself back in time with this exquisite Holophane Pendant Light. Emanating a timeless allure, this vintage gem is a testament to the enduring craftsmanship of a bygone era. Suspended from a meticulously crafted brass chain, the Holophane glass shade takes center stage, showcasing its iconic pagoda-inspired design.

This pendant light encapsulates the elegance and sophistication of the Edwardian period. The Holophane glass, renowned for its unique prismatic texture, diffuses light with unparalleled grace. Its shape not only adds a touch of architectural charm but also creates a mesmerizing interplay of light and shadow, casting a warm and inviting glow.
