Hi all,

Recently purchased this large & heavy textured square lampshade. It has elements that remind me of a couple of Scandi designs but I haven't been able to place it.

Does anyone recognise it please?

many thanks
Mel

it feels familiar Mel but I've not been able to find it.
It's the kind of thing Faglaviks would have made but there's nothing on their site to match that I can see.

I don't have the Dartington book, but I do know Dartington made textured cube lampshades with exactly this sort of overall appearance.
I had a clear one with the greek key design once.
Is it a Dartington pattern on it?

Never seen a Dartington lampshade myself....
 
This is not one of their patterns and not one of their colours either. This design has cropped up a few times, as far as I remember the maker was not identified.

yes John, I originally dismissed Dartington from my thoughts as the colour isnt   one I would associate with them.

there are examples of the big floor vases in amber (although they were shipped in from Woods?) just been through my FT book and can't match the pattern either - its sort of an amalgamation of several either FT or Scandi ones

I found it in the deLooie antiques centre in Amsterdam many years ago. I gave it to D&D and I think they broke it. We id'd it as Dartington from the pattern, but as I said, this was many years ago. We might have been wrong. Did Dartington do a Greek Key pattern?

They did do a Greek key pattern, scroll down, right hand side: http://www.20thcenturyglass.com/glass_encyclopedia/british_glass/dartington_glass/dartingtonglass_home.htm

They made those Greek Key vases in different sizes and in their standard colours from 68-72.  Not sure if they did any with their recycled stuff in around '94, if so those colours may not be the standard ones.

That was it  ;D- but in the same lampshade shape as the OP.
It would have been in the very early '00s I found it. I didn't even know it was a lampshade. I just filled it with sweeties and put it in a yuletide stocking, because they had an interest in pressed glass patterns. I thought it had a missing lid. :-[
