    It was a big risk buying this very large art deco glass shade considering the seller listed it as a Loetz shade(lies), but I really loved the color/shape and he was willing to accept a bid that was much lower than his original asking price. I have found many similar shades listed for sale in Bulgaria. Was there a company in that area who made these shades during the 1920s-1930s? It's very well made and the color is amazing!

      "there is the name Bauhaus that also keeps coming up with these as a maker in Germany"

      Bauhaus is not a maker, it is a design style commonly referenced and used as a descriptive term. It indicates a period and style of German design.

      Staatliches Bauhaus, commonly known as Bauhaus, was an art school in Germany, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught. It operated from 1919 to 1933.

      The term is most commonly associated with German Modernism, and used to describe a style, and not a maker's name or a specific source for any production.
    4. welzebub, 5 years ago
      The term Bauhaus is commonly applied as a misleading keyword in German ebay, to draw people to listings which have little to nothing to do with the term. The same practice as the seller of this piece listed it as Loetz, which is very common for these shades coming out of that part of Europe. It is no different than the widespread and misleading use of the terms "Loetz" and "Powolny" when selling tango glass.

      Your link was apparently to the Bauhaus school I referred to.

      This lamp shade is by Loetz. It's Czech but also called Bohemian. Loetz was a very high end glass manufacturer circa 1900. They developed an iridescent glass that was copied by Louis C. Tiffany. Loetz was first.
