I have up for sale a wonderful vintage / antique circa 1920s Stained Glass Hanging Lamp Shade. This is a True Vintage Shade dates to the 1920s , it is not a reproduction. The fruit pattern is one of the most copied of stained glass designs but this one is a true vintage original dating to circa 1920s not a remake. The shade measures approx 20-1/2 or so diameter. The shade features a Fruit pattern, with the pieces of fruit 3 dimensional / blown out.
There are 3 grape clusters, 3 apples, and 3 pears. The glass has wonderful coloration and the fruit are blown out - instead of flat pieces are 3 dimension. The shade was made with copper foil which is one of the indicators of a true vintage lamp.Current day shades have inferior glass and much heavier leading which is not done with copper foil. There is a single socket as you can see - could be replaced with a cluster.
Overall condition is Excellent considering its age and type. I see 2 very tight hairlines and one piece that has a manufacturing striation line but is not a crack. I notice one of the grapes is slightly different in color , not sure if its original or not. This piece is blue in color and is flat , the rest of the grapes are red in color and are rounded in shape. The shade is tight , the leading excellent.
Some minor wear to the finish on the leading which shows true age. ONLY THROW OUT THE BOX AND PACKAGING AFTER YOU HAVE INSPECTED THE ITEM AND ARE HAPPY THAT IT IS UNDAMAGED. I insure through a 3rd party insurer and have to follow their procedures - your help would be required to process the claim. I PACKAGE TO THE VERY BEST OF MY ABILITIES BUT SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN THAT ARE OUT OF OUR CONTROL.I list my items as thorough and as honestly as I can - but it is the buyers responsibility to be informed as possible. Color shades/tones may vary depending on my back round and lighting conditions as well your or my monitor settings. All my items are either older collectibles or antiques and as with anything of this nature there may be slight imperfections or manufacturing nuances. Please view the pics as though they are part of the items description.
