Product description

Art Deco glass lampshade - large globe-type, pink with frosted / gilt decoration (B)
 
A nice example of an original vintage Art Deco large globe-type lampshade / light shade of typically 1940s style, suitable for use with a ceiling fitting or standard lamp, in pale pink glass with a pattern of external frosting (with thin vertical clear lines) and horizontal gilt banding. The shade will need to be used in conjunction with a 4 1/4 inch "gallery" (shade holder); this is not included, but reproductions in brass or chrome finish are available from specialist dealers. Please note that the shade is fairly heavy (555g / 1.2lb approx); if it is to be used as a pendant light we would therefore recommend that it be hung from a fitting with a chain or sturdy stem.
 
Being a genuine vintage item, this shade shows some signs of age (see condition description below), together with some manufacturing irregularities / imperfections in the glass including lines and air bubbles; it nonetheless remains usable, and would make a pleasing decorative addition to a vintage-inspired interior.
