Deco lamp very unusual glass shade

:D :D :D

Hello Paul, I wouldn't really know either. They made a lot, all different styles and uses.
I bought a beautiful lampshade, cased coloured glass that was quite thin and arrived in 1000 pieces. The shade was not marked, but the fittings were.
I'm not positive your thing is not a marriage.

All I can suggest is to search Peill & Putzler in ebay and see what comes up! (I always have to search worldwide to get it to come up)
Cheers, Sue (M)

I had a look on eBay for this kind of shade so I could post up some links, but no one seems to be selling any - not as P&P, anyway...

I saw these and thought of this thread...  :D

SHADES AUCTION

LAMP AUCTION

The lamp auction indicates that the lamp at the beginning of this thread might not be a marriage after all, which is always good.

I bought this today...I immediately thought Peill & Putzler when I saw it.  It's a humungous lightshade made from thick glass with random captured bubbles, silvering and black/grey streaks - I think it's wonderful.  Measuring about 10" in diameter.

The brass cap has been painted silver at some point, and some strange residue has marked the unpolished glass of the neck with an odd rusty colour.  That colouration isn't due to glass, it's a residue.

The shop actually had TWO of them, but I've only bought one...should I go back and get the other?   :?

Well, if someone confirms it's P & P, then I might!   :lol:  Although Marinot would be acceptable too.   :wink:

I second that.

Purely from a resale point of view, in my experience, lamps in pairs always sell at a premium.

Umm...I can see that, but it depends how much you pay and how much you think you can get back on re-sell...

Ah, good point, Max. I always assume everyone else is a tight-fisted bargain-scavenger.... like wot I am.  :lol:

Out of curiousity.... how much did it dent your purse by?
