    This morning I noticed these as I was coming downstairs and the shape seemed to jump out at me. I then went on line to CW and found the post by Jericho, as seen here.
    I wrote to Jericho and then it was too late to chicken out so here I am.
    Dare I say that these shades were made by Kralik? Granted my shades do have large prunts, but if we look only at the shape does anyone think I might be right? And if I am way off would anyone please take the time to tell me what is obvious to them that I am missing?
    Thank you in advance for any information you would care to share with me. Thank you too for taking the time to look and read this post.

      Lisa, I can't read the purple lettering on your photo. What does it say?

      Dear Vintagedollcolector,
      I am sorry how foolish of me. It says, the arrow above points to the iridescence that is ever present on the whole surface of these shades, except when I was trying to capture it with my camera. Or words to that effect. Thank you for your interest. I appreciate it.

      Dear Leah,
      Thank you so much for having taken the time to enlighten me. I appreciate your time and expertise. Is there any chance that you have an image of a piece done by Poschinger with similar decor? I am anxious to understand and learn as much as I can. Thank you again.

      LoetzBuddies , Justanovice, Obscurities, ozmarty, Greatsnowyowl, Hornet, ks85, MacArt, Manddmoir, czechman and inky I want to thank you for taking the time to look at my shades. I am so pleased that you love them too. I only wish I could photograph like Tony so you could really see them properly. I have this set on the fixture over the staircase here. The fixture is a gas/electric and I have gas slips that work well with the shades. They are on a very similar ground and have random threading in green. There is also a beaded skirt that needs to be redone, it is a project for this winter on snowy evenings. I will shoot the fixture when I have it done so you can see what I have done with these. Thank you all again for making me feel so welcome. You are the great. I will keep working on my camera skills I have a lot to learn and I love it. Learning that is.

      I am probably wrong, but these look American in style to me. It is more of a Quezal shape with Fostoria stylings and rare Steuben threading. It is either a rare group or a newer product made to confuse. I really love them either way.
    7. Lisa-lighting Lisa-lighting, 10 years ago
      Thank you JohannB. I appreciate your having taken the time to look at the shades. I am as sure as I can be that they are not new shades. I will look again at the shapes of Quezal. I haven't seen this random threading on Steuben shades but I would love to. Do you have any images of the three makes that you mention in your post? If so I would love to see them. Thank you again. I appreciate your time.
      I had a chap write to me and send images of a lamp he has and wants to know more about. I am not able to help him. Would you take a look? I can either email his letter and images to you. Or I could put them on line and email you a link? If you have either or both the time and the inclination. Please let me know.

      Thank you so much for your help and loves and likes since I have been here, and I hope you and your family have a safe Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year!...:-)

      Dear Inky,
      You are more than welcome. I just wish I could be more useful. I did find an image of the powder box Southern Belle so I will send that on to your email address too.
      I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and 2013 will just have to be our best yet. :O)
    10. Lisa-lighting Lisa-lighting, 10 years ago
      Oops, Inky I am sorry I got mixed up. It was spirit in the sky to whom I sent the depression glass lamp pics. Duh! Please ignore that bit of my last message.

      Dear Bellin,
      Thank you! I hope you are having a good holiday too. We had some snow on the ground Christmas morning so I was happy. It just isn't Christmas for me unless it is snowy. I'm looking forward to ordering some of those Butler Brother's catalogues now that Christmas shopping has been done. :O) Hopefully I will have some show and tells to do rather than my usual show and Asks. :O)

      HI; if you look at the Kralik threaded piece (posted a couple times) at
      and on it will look a lot like your shades. I'm no expert by any means, but can't help notice the similarity. Beautiful.
    13. Lisa-lighting Lisa-lighting, 10 years ago
      Dear Fishiowa,
      Thank you. Yes, that first vase is what prompted my post. It is very similar in shape isn't it?
      I think when next the sunshines here I will shoot some more threaded shades.
      I appreciate your interest. Thank you for your time.
