  1. Hi I picked up 2 of these... Are they stone or glass, what period? Is it brass frame? Please help thanks IMG_20191109_142937_resize_20.jpg IMG_20191109_143008_resize_91.jpg IMG_20191109_142952_resize_7.jpg IMG_20191109_142952_resize_7.jpg IMG_20191109_143035_resize_30.jpg IMG_20191109_143035_resize_30.jpg

    In my limited experience, these would be glass rather that stone. Based on the shape, they may be for a ceiling fixture. Others will know more.

    Not exactly tulip, it may be for a table lamp for a woman's boudoir.

    Slag glass lamp shades were very popular in the 1960s/70s.
    Believe that they were brought back in the last 10-20 years. Think the shape is the newer shape for bedside lamps.

    Size would be helpful.

    The beaded frame for this bent glass slag glass shade suggests a 40s-50s date.
     
  8. Thanks for all input, size is 5 1/2" height x 4 1/2" width :)

    That seems too small for bedside lamps.

    I wonder about a kerosene lamp, but someone will correct me if it’s the wrong time period. :smuggrin:

    Oh had no idea it was so tiny!! This is why we should ask for dimensions when the photos are posted.

    @i need help seems to have found the correct lamp for this shade, thanks!
     
  12. Sorry I should have given the measurements before. Thanks for all the help :)
