Product description

Antique gas / early electric frosted glass lampshade - round with hand-cut pattern
 
A late 19th or early 20th century antique / vintage frosted glass lampshade / light shade for a gas or early electric pendant / ceiling light or wall light fitting, with hand-cut pattern to the exterior (which produces a lovely effect when lit), measuring approximately 12.7cm (5in) in height and 12.4cm (4.9in) in diameter (max); the lampholder hole is approximately 2.8cm (1.1in) in diameter, and thus the shade may fit a standard UK plastic pendant lampholder, although it may be found necessary to substitute a metal equivalent.
 
There is some age wear including abrasion and slight marking to the surface and several small shallow chips / nibbles to the base edge, whilst there is some chipping and nibbling around the lampholder hole (which would of course be hidden when the shade is hung); there are numerous air bubbles in the glass (including a large one towards the top of the shade), together with some minor irregularities in the cut pattern (consistent with its having been cut by hand).
