Here's another deco lamp from my collection. Mica, a crystallized mineral which was used in lamp shades to create a beautiful glow, was typically associated with Arts and Crafts period, but Art Deco lamps using mica shades were also available, albeit rarer to find today. The use of mica as a lamp shade material generally faded out in vintage lamps after World War II. This American-made mica lamp (manufacturer and designer unknown) was most likely a transitional design lamp between the Arts and Crafts period and the Art Deco era, probably made in the late 1920's or early 1930's. The lamp base is an amber crackle glass, and the sun ray motif is an iconic design motif for the Art Deco period. The skyscraper metal finial is a nice deco touch to this lamp.

    They seem to be using mica quite a bit these days, although it is for thin shades and not sure if real or not. Have seen it used by one place in particular. Your example is quite extraordinary, beautiful !~
