I found this B&H base at a flea market for $20 and I found the shade on the internet for $50. I put them together and this was the result. I know the lamp "purists" would say that this is a "marriage", but both base and shade are period to each other and B&H used a wide variety of shades from different makers, so I am still pleased with it.
The shade has a gold griffin on two sides and a design on the other two. It is green cased glass. I have seen similar that was attributed to Baccarat. If anyone knows who made the shade, please let me know.

    Two great finds, and they fit like a glove. You are right, they bought or ordered shades from different companies.

    I love this! Who wouldn't? You have great taste only surpassed by your amazing luck at finding bargains. ;o) It only takes years of hard work to know what you are looking at and then being there at your desk or on the field when the opportunity comes along. Kind of like the overnight successes that have been singing their hearts out for years in pubs, clubs etc. ;o)

    Thank you Lisa! I like your stuff too. I have been doing this for 20 years and I still get surprised at what I find. I should post more of my findings.
