Hi,
this pair of heavy glass lamp shades needs ID :)

Clear glass with white (cloudy) underlay, brown and red glass ornaments overlay. (Sorry if the expressions are not correct, I am new to technical terms regarding glass :) )
Height 25cm and 26cm.

Michael,  they are lovely,  so 50's....my era!

I think they might be Venini....these are of a similar ilk and I have seen others as well.

I think the jury's out on who designed those lampshades Rosie according to that link?  :-\ I'd love these ones to be Venini, but they don't seem to have the panache and skill that the Venini ones have.  Really nice shades though and very 50s feeling like Rosie says.   :thup:

A lot of lighting companies had shades made in that style in the 50s chances of finding the lighting company are low, the maker lower.
