a Holophane pendant light

I drove out to sort out several things. The weather was changing rapidly. It is fine sometimes, rains, icy rains, windy, cloudy, etc., everything you can expect of bad weather.

I dropped in an antique shop on my way back to find a cute pendant light. The shopkeeper, who is also the owner, explained of the item. It came from U.S. about 100 years ago, bought by a rich, local merchant, who built his wealth through trade in Japan Sea. He had a mansion in Mikuni, a small town 70km way from our home, into which he installed the pendant light. I was fascinated by its arrangement; it is capped with a taft of strings so that it fits with a tatami room. I took it home.

The pendant light was made by Holophane, one of the oldest company selling lighting-related products. I could find some other lights similar to the one I’ve got today. The page containing the photo shows an amazing price. No, it does not cost you so much.
