can anyone tell me more about this light? designer, etc

this is an original light in our home. it's a metal frame with mother of pearl pieces between the metal frame. i saw a similar light on melrose ave in la about a year ago but was in a hurry and never inquired about it...

all i know was the architect offered to buy it back from us if we were going to replace it! we're not - we love it...

yes, quite common in higher end homes in the '50s. Cliff May used them. I want to say Nelson had something to do with them, but can't confirm. A custom MCM in my neighborhood has several. I have seen hem in other MCM homes. Cool lights!
