These types of lamp shades are documented in Early Twentieth Century Lighting Fixtures, by Jo Ann Thomas in catalogue reprints of "Teplitz Shades". Many are in trademark Pallme Koenig (Glasfabrik Elisabeth) decors, PK having operations in Teplitz. Vivid orange soft craquelle glass with silver oil spots. I added the shade to a bridge lamp I picked up at a flea market over the weekend, and it is the perfect reading light! I sits next to my spot on the couch in between my printer and my bookcase filled with glass books. Reading up on Czech glass by the softly diffused light of a PK shade is only appropriate - I love it!
