Patience is a virtue when trying to pair up shades with lamps - buying them together is usually an expensive proposition. I bought the shade a few weeks ago on eBay for not a lot of money. It is stamped with a semi-circular Czechoslovakia mark (see photo No. 2). The lamp was a more recent find. I bought it on eBay because is was inexpensive, it had a 3" fitter (just right for the shade), and I thought the musicians and the brightly colored end of day shade went well together. The last photo shows the lamp "in situ".

    I AM NOT AWARE OF THE GENUINE BULBS AT THE TIME.
    TAKE CARE HOW STRONG THE BULBS ARE – THE AIR MAY OVERHEAT.

    I BUY 25 WATT BULBS BY THE DOZEN. FROSTED, NOT CLEAR! BUT I KEEP A COUPLE OF 40 WATTS HANDY FOR THE AREAS, SUCH AS MY HALL, WHERE I NEED MORE LIGHT. BUT THE SHADES THERE ARE OPEN, NOT CLOSED.
