Fluted Glass Holophane Shades and 1907 Harvey Hubbell Pull Chain Light Socket
I removed these two antique Holophane Glass Shades from upstairs bedrooms, and replaced them with larger vintage light fixtures for better lighting in the bedrooms.
These awesome fluted shades I'll re-wire with new fixtures and use over my sewing table in the west dormer of the art studio.
The pull chain socket fixture on the left turns out to be an antique as well. The label markings seem to fit the description of a manufacture date of 1907.
See link below for more information about this pull chain socket invented in 1896 by Harvey Hubbell.
