Globes first came into being with the advent of electricity when it was no longer necessary to have a vent. They are shades which entirely contain the light bulb, are held in place by set screw and can hang downwards on
hanging lamps and ceiling mounts.
Caution must be used, however, because there is nowhere for the heat to escape and therefore, high watt bulbs should not be used.
