The majority of which are Victorian eye candy shades but I also have some Art Nouveau shades both American and Bohemian.

  1. Thank you to you both ladies. Steven and Williams is definitely on the table. I am so glad that you like them too. I am dare I say it..... tickled pink. ;o) I wish you both lived around the corner so...
  2. Dear Perfumer, Thank you. Berry Pontil it is then. Webb? Now that is really exciting news. Thank you for looking and thank you too for the information. Sincerely, Lisa
  3. I have just spent a lovely few hours on your site, and wanted to add my thanks to all those before me. It is a great work and as so many have said it is a great resource for us. Thank you for your tim...
  4. Hi, I just found a shade that appears to be a match for your shades. It was listed on site called Worthopedia and had been listed on ebay by a company here in Canada. Bernardis antiques in Toron...
  5. Do take this for what it is worth. But by what I can see of that fitter I don't think these were made in America. I think you were on the right track before you found the Durand note. We will keep loo...
  6. This one appears to have been made on someone's best day of that week. It is lovely.
  7. The chap with the bee on his head is funny too and I quite like the man with the monocle. They must make you smile.
  8. That is a beauty. I had heard a few years ago that Robert was leaving to start a new adventure and I was worried that we would not be seeing any new work. But when I saw your post, I looked him up aga...
  9. Wow! Very classy, Glassy. Thank you for sharing this here. Wonderful photos too.
  10. Thank you Inky. Do you have any ideas about attribution? I am still not even sure about what country never mind a maker. I was just struggling with a book on Mount Washington or a reference to them b...
  11. Dear Peggy, Thank you. I think that the prunts were done as part of the piece and not just an addition to make a mistake still saleable. But I too am anxious to hear what those among us who rea...
  12. I think too that similar shades, were used as fairy lamp tops. It seems to me that the Fairy lamp book has them listed and I think that Jim has them on his site too? I will try to remember and look t...
  13. thank you Vintagefran, they do look wonderful when they are flying and lit. ;O) I hope I have the right fixture for this one but it may take me a while to settle on the piece that is just right. Sin...
  14. Thank you, racer4four. I appreciate your kind words. Thank you too to all those who took time to look at this shade and to click the love button. It was good of you and I appreciate it. Are there any ...
  15. Thank you so much, Sklo. How kind. Any ideas about the origin? Country, maker? Anything at all? I am pleased to have them regardless. I am just so pleased to learn new things about the love we share g...
  16. Oh blast! I have just been looking at the Leland Marple book on Phoenix glass and guess what I found? Yes, examples of what is refered to as Burmese glass. This adds further confusion since Phoenix pr...
  17. They are indeed possessed of a restful contrast. What a lovely turn of phrase. They are attractive as is your description. Thank you for sharing both. Sincerely, Lisa
  18. It is lovely! Are you already thinking about shades for this new addition? That will be fun. Please share your choice with us when you have decided and it has found it's home in your home. Sincerely...
  19. Oh, I should have mentioned that the fitter is beautifully done, had I seen a shade made by the Italian companies of the 70s that would have helped but alas, I have not.
  20. Thank you, Nutsabotas. I think that I finally have it too. ;o) I have used many shades on this lamp over the years but these really do seem to be the ones. I am glad to hear that you think so too. Si...
  21. Mike, I just had another thought. The Corning glass Museum in New York state has classes. What about exploring the glass blowing courses to see if making a replacement could be pursued there? I don't ...
  22. Found it! They show a lovely silver and glass claret jug that was smashed to bits and they had a new glass vessel made for it. N...
  23. I just saw a site where they do provide custom work but I didn't bookmark it. I will check and see if I can find it again. It was in England that much I do remember.
  24. why this could make even doing the bills a pleasant task. ;O)
  25. I think if you light the shade it will illuminate your numbers. :O) All you will need is a fixture mounted to the wall with a square shaped rod angled to mount into the shade and hold it securely. I t...
  26. Wonderful. Thank you for sharing your find.
  27. Handel is my best guess.
  28. Wouldn't it be great hanging over your house numbers on a porch? Just a thought.
  29. Perhaps this shade was on a wall mounted fixture.
  30. Dear Bob, Thank you ever so much for looking, If I posted some of my gas portables, the figural ones, would you mind looking to see if any of the figures are in your Miller catalogue? I have two...
  31. I believe these to be American, made circa 1915. Sorry I can't be sure of the maker but I wouldn't think that they are either Tiffany or Bohemian. If you would like to post an image of a single shade ...
  32. Dare I say, smashing?
  33. Dear Fran, If you don't have room, please let me know. ;o) Sincerely, Lisa
  34. These hollow handled knives have the blades attached with a material that with enough age or by seeing the inside of a dishwasher or even if the water in the sink is too hot it can dry out and that ma...
  35. Fingers and paws crossed here. I really hope you will hear that all is well and it is on the way to you. Sincerely, Lisa
  36. Wonderful find. The harder you work the luckier you get. ;o) Well done.
  37. What clever advertising. It is so unusual one would be bound to use it and doing so it would get attention and promote the product. Far more likely to be noticed than a pen, or the letter opener type...
  38. Love both the vases and the technology that allows us to find these treasures.
  39. What a lovely surprise! This colour is really interesting. Would it be far more difficult to find, may I ask? Was it described as pink? I know that often sellers call anything pink or purple without a...
  40. How interesting! Thank you for sharing your collection with us. Welcome to cw. Sincerely, Lisa
  41. I think that your example is much earlier than the one aghcollect found. The level of adjustment possible on your lamp elevates it. I may also have been used on an upright piano as a light to use to r...
  42. Thank you for the education. Now I know what a lemon squeezer base is. I can't say that I like these nearly as much as the fine art glass examples you shared earlier. Are these older? The cranberry c...
  43. Oh and mine doesn't have that cool shade either. Just that conical one you always see.
  44. Great. And you know exactly what the other ashtray should look like. ;O) So you are as good as there. I have this one with just brass topped ashtrays and cigarette box and no jadite to be seen. There ...
  45. I can't tell you who made these but I can let you know that this pattern was also produced in a cap shape with a 2 and 1/4 inch fitter. I have thought they were American but as I said I have not foun...
  46. How exciting! They look so complete and perfect. Lucky you. Finding a maker of the glass may take you forever but you can enjoy them and know that finding a pair in such original condition is amazing....
  47. It is delightful. When you have it rewired get them to use rayon cord and a reproduction plug, you will be glad that they did. Sorry, I can't help with regard to a maker but I will keep looking. Sinc...
  48. Wonderful. It should be easier to replace the pieces you need than it would be to replace the lighter. Well done you! It is a lovely example.
  49. The finish looks good in the photos. I would leave it myself. Once it is gone, it is gone. ;o)
  50. Dear Bob, Did they make a version of this as a gas lamp/cigar lighter? Thank you for sharing the information from your catalogue. Sincerely, Lisa
