Hi just found this item in a link, and thought I would just pass the link onwards -- and get some discussion about it.  I have never seen anything like this, so I thought it was really nice.  Wonder IF they really started out together -- or IF this might be a *marriage* of sorts?

Thanks for your input....as was just curious if it was?

The glass is an Italian Millefiori shade. It would not surprise me if they started life together, although the lamp is likely not Italian. Here is an example of one in our lamp collection...
