Antique Lighting from

The Drawing Room Antiques

Shade 5. Offering an unusual Quilted Amberina Style Glass Ball shade. Suitable for a column, moderator or carcel lamp. Size: 7" tall; 7" diameter; fitter opening 2 1/4". Condition: edge flakes to the fitter opening and I suspect that there were fitter rings at the top and bottom of the shade and those are missing. Colors are range from a deep ruby to a very pale pink. Don't know where or who made this shade. Believe it to be period, sometime in the late 19th century. Joseph Locke of the New England Glass Company developed Amberina and it was registered by W.L. Libbey. If this is Amberina, it is a pretty rare shade. Price: $300.00.
