I couldn't walk by this too many more times at a local antique shop I was visiting again today, and an employee got me into the right price range on it with my 40% off offer we settled around 37 I think off the tagged price. There was lots of paint and grime on it and it's starting to clean up nicely. I need a ceiling sconce now that has the 3 slots in it for the chains. I know another dealer with at least ten of the things, he showed me them with single and dual ceramic sockets, but he won't sell them since he restores and sells vintage light fixtures and will 'make' something out of them. But home the shade came today and happy I got the chains which were taped in place on the shade with crusty old masking tape. Goo-be-gone was the only thing I found took that dry glue off. It's a satin style uranium item with a pattern or motif I'm not familiar with as of yet. It'll be fun to find out if I can match up some table ware to this shade.
