I would like to know more about these iridescent textured glass shades that come with the antique, Jugendstil hanging four light bronze fixture shown in the last photograph. They are not marked or signed in any way nor are the metal parts. I would think that the glass shades are Bohemian considering the style of the fixture and the geographical region it comes from.

    Hi from Sydney Australia!
    Kralik? Mother of Pearl? What an amazing lamp!
    I suspect that there are more surprisses to come, Spackova?

    Isn't great? I haven't found many examples of Kralik shades to compare but will keep looking. Thanks again!

    That light fixture is fantastic. Very classy in my opinion. I'm so envious. But in a good way. :-)

    The large shade reminds me of Kralik Martelé .
  5. Spackova Spackova, 3 years ago
    Thank you ozmarty, yes, it does resemble Kralik Martelé. Does anyone know if Kralik made light shades?
  6. ozmarty ozmarty, 3 years ago
    They certainly did ask Alfredo on this site I'm sure he has many examples.
  7. Spackova Spackova, 3 years ago
    That's encouraging! I will see if I find something similar on the site you mention. Thanks again ozmarty!

    Hi another thought perhaps the shades are a combined set of Kralik and Rindskopf on a metal frame by an unknown maker of the metal frame.
    I have noted that Rindskopf did shades similar in shape to the four smaller ones. Katalog der Glasfabriken Josef Rindskopf's Söhne Teplitz-Schönau (Böhmen). Musterbuch 1915, Tafel 33.

    Interesting, take a look at the trefoil martele at https://sites.google.com/site/loetzglass/rindskopf

    very similar texture to the large shade, perhaps all of them are Rinskopf.
