||Pair of Vintage Ho Jo's Icosahedron Globe Lights
Genuine treasure from America's highways, a pair of vintage white glass globes from Howard Johnson's Restaurant. Each globe is an icosahedron (20 triangular sides) with one side serving as the 4 inch opening for the mounting hardware. Each triangular plane has applied colored plexi triangles in HoJo's orange and teal blue.
Can be used as either a ceiling mounted light or as a hanging pendant.
From HighwayHost.org: Rooted in popular culture, Howard Johnson's and its iconography has come to represent the golden (orange) era of Americana--prosperity, modernity, et al., -- notwithstanding the brand's current status. Featured and often referred to in media throughout the 20th century, the formerly Orange Roofed chain was once the epitome of modernity -- cutting edge in every way!
"Howard Johnson's -- An American way of life -- convenience, comfort and hospitality for the entire family, at home and away from home."
Very good, no chips or cracks. Electrical element is new and some of the colored acrylic triangles are replacements
