More lighting!

Hello David,
 :D Yes please, pretty please to more lampshades from me too! :D

I think my pics have disappeared because they're quite old. I've deleted them from my computer as well. Michael has the camera in Hungary for another week. I'll redo them eventually, and put them in photobucket.

 :idea: I think it would be quite nice to have a thread about various lampshades. They're an incredibly important part of how a room looks, and the modern ones you can get in the uk are mostly nasty. Finding nice ones is a real task!
Cheers, Sue (M)

I'll post some photos of three. One is currently winging its way to me, so will post them all at once.

Please Sue, do repost a pic of the pink flowery, I saw one last night when I went to dinner at a colleagues house. It was an heirloom and thought to hail from Ireland.
Being glassy [ the vinous kind ], I offered to research it.  Believing in the power of collective glassiness, naturally I came here.

Lighting of a slightly different kind.... Check out this link for "Petromax type pressure lanterns" belonging to a Finnish collector/enthusiast.

Handy things  to have.  Nostalgia trip coming on.... :roll:    Brings back memories of paraffin lamps used during power cuts, and camping :P   Quite a few of these for sale on last week's carboot.

As promised here are three lampshades I currently have. The first features a handpainted scene of stags and trees. Has a copper fitting with three retaining screws.

The second has a very Nouveau appearance, with pink glass and frosted panels, highlighted with gilt. Brass fitting with retaining screws.

 :shock: click any thumbnail to enlarge :shock:

The last is probably quite modern: 1980s? Has an excellent gloopy feel like honey dripping down the sides.

They're gorgeous David, thank you. I especially like the stag one.

I'm sure I saw several of the honey/gloopey one on that auction site recently?

All very nice - I reckon the painted stag one looks great lit, same for the pink one. I love the gloopey one, but it won't disguise the bulb very well!
That's my major problem with lampshades - they don't hide the bulb!
Cheers, Sue (M)
