FOR THOSE OF US WHO COLLECT AND RESEARCH ART DECO SHADES, THE MOST FRUSTRATING PART IS FINDING BASES WITH 3.00" FITTERS WHERE TO DISPLAY THEM.

SO I COUNTED MYSELF LUCKY WHEN I FOUND A BASE WITH A STAR SHADE (PIC. 1--6") , WHICH I REALLY DIDN'T NEED. IT DID NOT MATTER. I WAS AFTER THE BASE (PIC. 4, 12")

MUCH TO MY SURPRISE, WHEN I RECEIVED THE PIECE, I REALIZED THE SHADE WAS SMALLER THAN THE OTHER STARS I HAD (PIC. 2), WHICH MEANT I WOULD KEEP IT. BUT PREVIOUSLY I HAD BOUGHT A 7.5" SHADE IN A SHAPE I HAD NOT FOUND BEFORE. IT HAD "FITTER ISSUES"-- BUT, AS USUAL, I DID NOT MIND.

IT WAS OBVIOUS WHICH SHADE WOULD TAKE OVER THE BASE. BUT NOW I AM SHORT ONE BASE. AND I AM DESPERATELY LOOKING FOR ONE!

I WOULD HAVE USED THE WORD "RUCKL" BUT SINCE I HAVE NO HARD PROOF, I'LL ADD THE WORDS "TENTATIVELY ATTRIBUTED TO".
