Vasart but what ???
« on: February 03, 2007, 11:46:16 AM »
One for Frank

Im wondering if you have seen anything like this , most certainly vasart with the pink and Green and a smattering of Yellow specks, Rounded Mouth as if it was a lamp base , however the hole in the bottom would certainly unbalance it if it was meant for a flex , as for a vase or a light fitting i would not think so

Sizes  are 4.5 Inches Tall with the main body being 4.5 Inches Wide the top measures 3.5 Inches 

Thanks   G

Has to be a lamp shade, either hanging or for mounting on top of a base. The acid test would be seeing if it will fit, the cut hole looks quite small what size is it? It would need to get a small bulb holder inside and then the ability to actually fit a bulb that does not extend too far - but it does look a little tight at 4½"high!

Will try and get Dave Moir to look maybe he made it....

Thanks for getting back to me Frank
the diameter of the hole in the top is 1.75 Inches , so as you say it would be a small lamp that would be needed

What size is the small hole, I wonder if it would fit the standard threaded tube that lampholders screw onto.

I seem to be completely out of lampbases with a threaded top! If someone else has one, from 1950's, can you measure the thread tube at the top for outside diameter, please.

Quote from: Dave Moir
Had a look at the piece. It looks like Vasart but I have never seen this shape before, I recognise the colours as Vasart but I dont recognise the shape. Maybe it was a one off. They did make two piece lamps in this colour they looked quite good. This piece could be a base if there is a hole in the base. Will make further enquiries.

Now, where are these two piece lamps?

For those who don't know who Dave is...

Sorry for not getting back sooner to thank you all for your endevours. i had a small fitting attatched and it looked quite nice ( see if i can take a pic) the stand it was on was dodgy to say the least .
Thanks
