The Ruckl glass factory was a prolific maker of shades and lamps, often decorated extravagantly in the vivid mottled coloring associated with Deco Czech glass (see Truitt I). Many of these shades are erroneously marketed as "Frankart" because they fit the white metal bases of the period. Most are unmarked. Neither the metal bases nor the shades are really Frankart.
The pictures above show the three shapes I have found. However, only the "Star" shape, which is the most common (I pulled six different decors in this shape from Internet), exhibits a circular provenance mark, which appears in Ruckl vases as well. The spatter decor is also quite similar to Ruckl "Pierrot" line. They are all 7" tall and have 3" fitters. I also have a Satin Spatter "Flame" shade, unmarked, same size fitter.
