    Found this a while ago in an old building I was cleaning out. If you have not seen one of these before join the club! I thought it was just a homemade ceramic piece until I stumbled across a similar lithophane shade on line, (the second pic is with no light) so I decided to put a light in it and saw these great images! There are 4 images total. It is 3 3/4" across, 3" tall and the top opening is 2". How do I determine the age of this and can anyone point me in the direction of what kind of lamp base I should look for? Thanks for lookin! Rob

      Thanks keramikos! I love this shade too! I`m very new to these. When you look at them unlit they look like a mistake, I was glad that I didn`t discard it when I first saw it! I hope I can locate a lamp base to hold this, not sure of how it should go onto a lamp. Thanks again for the info! Rob

      Thanks keramikos for all of the information!!! I am learning a lot about these great pieces! I came very close to discarding mine but kept noticing the figures on it and kept it around, I have some stoneware saucers and am going to try one soon!! Thanks again!!! Rob
    11. bobby725 bobby725, 1 year ago
      Keramikos, do you think this one is from the 1800`s? the scenes look like that period. Thanks again! Rob
    12. Sammyz Sammyz, 1 year ago
      How awesome! I love the detail and depth of the images! Great find!
    13. Sammyz Sammyz, 1 year ago
      I just found a single panel in the exact pattern of the fox and cubs. It is an antique located in Belgium so I wonder if yours is old European?
    14. bobby725 bobby725, 1 year ago
      Thanks Sammyz for the comments! I`m wondering the same, when I found this I didn`t know what I had and for some reason kept it! It is completely different from unlit to lit! Thanks again!

      This appears to have been made by Prensaich Porzellan Manufactur in Plaue (P.P.M.) Germany, mid to late 1800's. The hunters shooting a turkey panel is PPM 142 and I will let you know the number, when the fox panel arrives. Does your shade have any markings inside?
    19. bobby725 bobby725, 1 year ago
      Thanks Sammyz for the info! There are no markings on it that I can see. I added 2 pics. that show it lit and unlit on a white saucer with a tea candle inside.
    20. bobby725 bobby725, 1 year ago
      Thanks keramikos! yes, it looks great on the saucer so that`s where it will live! Yes, the fourth panel is wolves and deer, pic was taken with a nearly used up candle so not as bright.
    21. bobby725 bobby725, 1 year ago
      Thanks again keramikos! Mine isn`t marked so not sure if it`s old or a repro. but I don`t care, I think it`s cool! Thanks again! Rob
    22. bobby725 bobby725, 1 year ago
      Keramikos, did some searching and found a couple of numbers, problem is they are 2 numbers for the same image, -ppm 932 and ppm 1142 for-Deer in the forest. So I`m not sure what that means.
    23. Sammyz Sammyz, 1 year ago
      I think i found your original lamp....take a look at this picture. I think what you have is the top half of this hanging lamp.
