Deco lamp very unusual glass shade
« on: April 16, 2006, 09:30:43 PM »
Bought this lamp today, the body and base are wonderful solid marble with chrome fittings and it screams 1930's, but it's the shade that really does it for me. Circular glass with the lower 2/3 having a vaseling like opaqueness. the top has 4 deep ridges that go into the inside with the appearance of fork lightening and the top has a vaseline like amber area. The effect when lit is wonderful and never seen a shade like it so any ideas anyone, overall height is 22" and weighs a ton.

I've never come across a lamp quite like it so we are now trying to find the right place in the house for it as I'd like to keep it. The trouble is I'm a sucker for lights and I've just got back the two I bought in France from being rewired so a bit of rethink called for tomorrow.

I'd take more time for that than one night only! I am sure that in the bottom of your heart you knew its place when buying it  :wink:

I've got an antique lacquered and hand painted octagonal Korean hat box that I bought when I worked out there in the late 1970's and I think it will probably end up on that in the lounge.
Also bought a deco double inkwell and a big buch of lovely 18th century iron keys.

I'm really a minimalist at heart, but it just never seems to work out that way.

I think Nic's the lamp expert, but I do search ebay for Peill & Putzler art glass sometimes. They did a lot of lighting, and I'm sure I've seen similar shades in the passing......

Peill & Putzler used to make very similar ones. There's a large junk shop in York that has 3 or 4 of these in stock if you ever accidentally break that one, though. I'm not 100% sure that the shade is original, as I've only ever seen them used as ceiling lamp shades before. But I'd be very pleased to be wrong!

Oops... just read all the threads (I've only just noticed it's spread over 2 pages), and Sue beat me to the P&P attribution...  :D

You should see my place!  :shock:  It's fun when you get to combine lamps and glass, though!  :D

As a real rookie where lighting is concerned, I'm surprised by the thickness and weight  of the glass shade, far heavier than I expected, would this be typical of P&P work?

I really couldn't answer that - the only absolutely verified P&P lamps I've seen are from literature and eBay - I've never bought any or seen any in design shops or antique fairs that I could handle for myself. The ones in York I mentioned had no labels, so I couldn't say for certain that they were by P&P.
