Ribbed glass green domed X-Ray shade pendant with solid brass lampholder and cordgrip. This is a genuine antique X-Ray reflector with a silvered glass pattern inside and a green colored outer surface. These original “X-Ray” brand reflectors were made in the USA about 8o years ago. This style is labelled “Beehive”. They were designed to be used as high intensity shop fittings where a strong reflector was required. Older style bulbs were not as intense as modern bulbs, and so these shades provide a high degree of reflecting capacity. A specially designed coating protects the silver finish.
There is some degradation of the silvered surface and some chipping from age. The mirrored surface gives the light a very distinctive look and given that the shades are around 80 years old, they are in good condition. The cord grip mechanism ensures that the cable can not be pulled out of the fitting. The earthed system requires 3 core flex and needs to be wired to earth for use a ceiling pendant light fitting.
