Description

Our art-glass shades are made by a small, family-owned glassmaking company in California that uses the same techniques that Tiffany, Steuben, and Quezal employed from about 1900 to the mid 1920's.

This "tulip" begins as a clump of gold and white glass. It's rolled in a round wood block, blown into a mold, shaped, and opened on each end. The glassblower dimples the bottom lip with a fluting mold, and spins thin strips of green glass onto the hot glass surface. A knife dragged across the strips creates the feather pattern, and a tin chloride misting provides its iridescent finish.

  • 2-1/4" fitter
  • As with all handblown glass, individual variations will occur

Tips:

Due to their delicate nature, these shades should be lit with 60W (or lower) bulbs only.

These shades are very narrow, and only some bulbs will fit inside them. Use a rubber-gripped gardening glove while changing bulbs to make handling easier.
