Max that's gorgeous - what a fabulous piece of workmanship - what does it look like with a lit bulb inside?

I've paid something between peanuts, something-probably-less-than-it-cost-to-make, and twice probably a reasonable price, for shleiergraphit.
I have confidence in it. :shock:  
Look at all the positive responses to it from glassies.  8)  
Look at it's (possible) pedigree.  :? 8)  
Every piece is completely individual.  8)8)
Ivo has some.  8) 8) 8)
I would not have left another lamp behind! :twisted:

Invariably lamps like these tend to be made up by an importer/lighting firm using components from various different sources.

The shade is interesting. I had one similar some time ago, and I have seen others.

My unsubstantiated theory for years has been that they are Czech and were designed by Pavel Hlava and I suspect that quite a number were produced. (If not PH then one of his students)

So I'm going to email the link to Marcus for his opinion. :D

Max, is there a "back-to-back" double P engraved anywhere on it? The mark can be hard to find. Every bit I have is marked, (just checked, but it does actually look like a tall little triangle, with an oval shape floating on top of it today, rather than back-to-back P's!). The mark is about 8mm tall, total. I don't have a lampshade, though.
Cheers, Sue (M)

To avoid confusion, I'm talking about Paul's lamp, not Max's..... :D

Deja vu?
Actually, I think that this discussion came up some time ago, possibly on the old board, and I have a feeling that Marcus said that it was by Jaroslav Brychta. But then, maybe I dreamt it! :D

Hi,
Personal feeling is that this is a marriage.
Hlava is not normally associated with lampshade manufacturers in Czechoslovakia, as far as I am aware. imho, 60's or later for the shade.
Will do some research, but family commitments until Tuesday, so please be patient.
Regards,
Marcus

If it is a marriage, it seems to be a commonly executed one - I've seen two near-identical ones on eBay since, and another at a car boot sale.

I agree it's a marriage. The shade is from a ceiling light fitting in my view, and there would probably be three, five, or seven per fitting. Possibly even more.

The turned over edge is designed to secure ia shade on a pendant shade. While this is found on table lamps, it is not necessary.
