This light is named Lido. I'm not sure what a famous showgirl extravaganza has to do with this fixture. The only thing I can think of is that a lot of folks must purchase it to replace the ubiquitous boob lights. The fixture I'm replacing doesn't fall into this category, but it's vintage in a way that doesn't really work with my taste. I'm looking forward to brightening things up. But, before I do that I'll have to get over my utter terror of electricity!
