"Many moons ago when I was OEM Sales Manager and was visiting a customer, I learned of Dan Johnson at Continuum Antiques and in Orleans, MA.
I went to Dan’s shop and saw the largest collection of old Holophane lights and reflectors/refractors I have ever seen! Some were in their original state, others restored to their original beauty and many re-purposed into beautiful new fixtures and lamps.
Dan recently reached out to me announcing his new updated website. If you get into the history of Holophane you need to check out his website. You will find some truly one-of-a-kind fixtures as well as some old favorites.
If you’re ever in the Cape Cod area, stop in Dan’s shop – you will be amazed."
Sue Ormiston, Director Sales Support, Acuity Brands (Holophane Lighting Company)

"Dan, thanks for getting our fixtures back so fast, they look better than new, you did such a good job. Now I'm looking around the house for something else to bring you. And my husband thought they weren't worth fixing. Ha!"
