    Here's my latest refurbish project complete with a Loetz shade. I have been sifting through my books and the closest I find is
    PN II-4473 ca 1907. Lnenickova shows it as a 5-ruffled shade. It also indicates a corresponding PG 4473 with an ivory ground, leaf green decor with silver and rosa threads.

    Also shown is my "new" old cold-painted bronze lamp in art nouveau ivy. It came from the UK in non-working condition. I replaced the socket for use in the US, re-wired it with twisted cloth wire, added the fitter and chose a key switch to keep it looking antique. The lamp base has an adorable snail hiding in the leaves to the lower left of the photo 3. The beautiful shade is the icing on the cake and was purchased special for this lamp.

      I must admit that I was hesitant about letting the shade go, but now I see..... it was just destiny. You have created an absolutely beautiful piece. I have seen a lot of marriages of shades and bases throughout the years but its very rare to to see two pieces come together to form one such as this.... Great job!..... love it!...... David

      Definitely Loetz and I think you are right on the shape being II-4473. The drawing of the leaf-green "feather" decoration looks different but maybe they were trying to show a left and right side of one "part" rather than showing the pattern for the "chevron" shaped part. Are there 5 chevrons drawn on the shade? The two colors of threads really seem to point to PG 4473. BTW, the papillon looking spots are usually referred to as "Krosel" in your5 book. Very nice piece.
    5. Sammyz Sammyz, 4 years ago
      Thanks Deb! Google translate didn't have a clue of what Krosel meant. Yes this has 5 leaves and krosel. Regarding the shape of the leaves in the drawing, I wonder if the pattern wasn't rendered accurately?

      Incidentally, I have found a possible example of drawings not being terribly accurate: In Lnenickova neither PN II-4518 nor PN II-4522 has their own assigned PG but both list an execution in PG 2409, shown drawn in PN II-2409. The drawings of the first 2 show blunted leaves; the last shows a more pointed decor but does not list any other PG.
