Luxfer Prism Glass Tiles 1897. Four Luxfer Prism Glass Tiles. The concept was simple, refraction of light to the back of room. Electrical lights were in their infancy. Thomas Edison did not even invented the incandescent electric light until 1879. Luxfer Prism Company was not incorporated until 1897. The first date imprinted on this tile is October 4, 1881. In 1881, James G. Pennycuick, secured a patent for illuminating tiles to be used in vault-lights in Boston Massachusetts, Patent No. 247,996, dated October 4, 1881. In October, 1896, John M. Ewen Henry M. Bacon, Thomas W. Horn, and James Pennycuick founded the Radiating Light Company in Chicago. Two months later they changed the name to Semi-prism Glass Company and finally, in March 1897, to Luxfer Prism Company. Text imprinted in glass: "Luxfer. Patented. October 4, 1881. August 12, 1884.
