Oooooh thanks all, I'll see if I can find a copy. If not, Christine, I'd be glad of a peek through yours, thank you! :kissy:

Anne — Diamonds and squares subdivided by double intaglio lines are typical features of many Walsh patterns, as are also the long flake cuts, and were continued by the cutting team after their transfer to Tudor.   However these features weren't exclusive in any way, and I've occasionally seen examples from other Stourbridge glassworks.

Note that Walsh table lamps were often only marked on the inside of the shade, leaving the base unmarked.

Could you bring it to Birmingham?   I might be more informative if I could handle it.

Metal could be as early as 1900 but I would be inclined to after WW1. Very unlikely but not impossible after 40s

Bernard, thank you! Birmingham is Nov 14th isn't it, which I can't make as I have a dress rehearsal that day so shall be up to my neck in luvvies and lights. I'm hoping to make the Feb Glass Fair as I'm not doing the next production as I'm elsewhere on performance nights.

Frank thank you, the metalwork is the same as is on a hanging lamp (mock oil lamp type) which my Mother has which came with an orange outside / white inside shade. I'm delighted to think they might be as old as you suggest. It's such a shame there's no shade with it but it's such a pretty base that I couldn't resist it anyhow.

The shade would have been cut glass too.

Yep, I gathered that Frank.  :kissy:  I've been searching through every glass book I own and all the reference sources I can think of and have found a fair few examples of them but none match mine.  :cry:
