    You may recall that I posted this Art Deco globe lamp shade a couple of months ago. Luckily I chanced upon a suitable base this week and here it is. It looks altogether better lit and gives the hall a mellow glow.

    The base is the shape I wanted and I am pleased that the shade is fitted without visible screws. However I would have preferred gun metal or black so I'll keep looking. In the meantime I can at least enjoy having it lit.

      Thank you SEAN, and both parts found in charity shops!.......possibly the equivalent of your 'thrift' and 'goodwill'.

      Looks like lava! Organic and wonderful.....amazing how the light gives things life.

      Thanks, racer, for sharing what you 'saw' in the images. Agree about the effect of light:-)

      Thank you, czechman, aghcollect, vetraio, geo26e, terrtic, smiata, Elisabethan, AnneL, toolate, mikelv and racer for the love.

      Beautiful marriage of the two parts, I like the brass coloured base but you could also consider something in chrome when you are looking around.
    7. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you, Gracay, a good suggestion and certainly more in keeping with the period than brass. However it is really hard to find something that meets all the criteria.

      Looks good!...:-)
    9. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you, inky.....certainly better when lit! :-)

      Hi Phil, thank you for taking the trouble to share your knowledge. I am still looking for something better so it's useful.
    12. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Thank you Edievintage, glad you 'loved' it.

      absolutely gorgeous.

      i would kill for one. i bought a tripple elephant one years ago for 250 dollars. crazy i know. broke it a week later. only wanted it for the globe. now i have the elephant base and no beautiful globe. doh.
    15. sklo42 sklo42, 5 years ago
      Glad you like it so much. I didn't know what it was when I bought it. Yesterday someone told me. Read it on my earlier post about this globe.

      Thank you angelhair for the love.

      Thanks,'s real strength is that it makes the hall look as if it is lit by candles.
    18. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Hmmm, they still exist? It would light your oil painting beautifully!
    19. Zowie Zowie, 4 years ago
      It may not be exactly what you wanted but this looks really good love the colours.
    20. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Thank you Zowie, it does look good lit, perhaps I need to be less picky :-)
    21. Zowie Zowie, 4 years ago
      We all are with our own items especially if it isn't quite what we wanted. Don't be so hard on yourself
    22. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Hi, Zowie, I'll try :-)
    23. Zowie Zowie, 4 years ago
      Everyone else is hard on us why should we do it to ourselves & I don't just mean this site as most people are great on CW
    24. sklo42 sklo42, 4 years ago
      Yes, Zowie, most people here are great and some are exceptionally kind.

      is there any chance you can adopt me and I can borrow this next weekend?
      It's gorgeous...
