This *was* yet one more prize from a closet shelf in the cleanout house (its actual fixture/socket having long since been replaced by a ceiling fan no doubt?) until yesterday...when it'd finally got cleaned and photo'ed, ready to be shown. 1st 3 pics were from that.
BUT OH SO SADLY (and wholly due to my own negligence, by otherwise then leaving it sitting in a chair for measurements/etc when I was gonna write the showing, where it also ended up with a shirt kinda tossed over it too) my partner came back in the house and naturally wanted to sit down...the "crash" was rather immediate and I knew exactly what it was...did I mention the chair in question is my old barber chair with its *very solid metal* base...the poor thing didn't stand a chance, as pic #4 clearly shows... <crybye>
It WAS a lovely (if admittedly probably not terribly unusual?) likely 1940's-ish pressed glass ceiling light diffuser/shade, of the style which would have been suspended by 3 little chains from its actual fixture. Probably about a foot across and 4"-ish deep, I hadn't quite taken/noted the actual dimensions.
And after duly picking up the pieces into a trashcan and taking 'em out last nite, I actually went and recovered 'em all (pic#4 again) today, because for some ridiculous reason I *can't quite yet* bring myself to really throw the remains away...??
