This is an eBay find from a few years back. I have lots of thoughts about it's origins, but nothing substantiated. It is clear glass with golden motling, aqua green threading, and a delicate light blue oil spot iridescence. Is it Bohemian? Is it a modern interpretation of the past? I'd love your thoughts. Thanks! :)

    Thanks JayHow!
    It does have all the hallmarks of Bohemian glass, but exactly what I don't know. I've only seen one other shade like this and it was in a random picture that I found online while researching another piece of glass. The shade had been erroneously placed on a converted student desk lamp for which it was far too small so in the end it was no help to identification.

    Thank you, BELLIN. I think there is a good chance it's American, even studio glass. I've even spent a good chunk of time looking for similar shapes and decors, but nothing has really tied the shade to a particular maker. Old or modern, I love the shade regardless.

    Thanks, Czechman. It certainly has a Pallme Konig feel to it, though not typical in coloration.
