There are seven of these lamp shades in all, six with different colours. Two of them are signed, as per the photos. The signature looks Italian judging from the 'de' start, but difficult to read the rest.

Anyone out there with knowledge on light/lamp shades?

Think the last word reads Murano, still trying to fathom out the rest!  :)

if it was Italian wouldn't it start di...........     I thought the middle bit vaguely like Hop, and the last one vaguely like Lux something. :-\

Good try Greg - not far out. Paul, the 'de' start to a name is not that uncommon, I think?  ???

Well found M! Many thanks  :D

Can't work out why only two of the seven were signed, but I was surprised that they could be quite contemporary as well.

welcome :) and if you had the metal chandelier as well ... well it could be worth nearly $3000!
