    I bought this lamp over 40 years ago because it looked like candy but I've never been able to find a shade I thought looked well with it. Well I just pulled it out of the shed again. Does anyone have any idea what this glass is & where I might get a shade to complement it? The outdoor picture shows the opaque glass in between the candy like objects. Thanks!

      Millefiori, made by Murano. Gorgeous! These sorts of lamps normally have a matching millefiori glass shade.

      Oh dear...put it on your Christmas list and hang up an extra sturdy stocking! I suppose you could buy a colored glass or lead crystal shade to put on it.

      Beautiful Murano Lamp -- I think the maker might be FRATELLI TOSO, in my opinion

      Assuming you someday find the money, the thing to do would be to go to the source and have them make a custom shade for you. There are
