# 4805. A pair of rare cut glass gas crown topped shades. 4" bottom fitter size and a crown top with a top opening of 7 5/8" across, the shades are 5.5" tall. Cut glass gas shades are hard to come by and were generally used on cut glass chandeliers. The price for this pair of shade is $850.00.

Condition: minor scuffing consistent with use and age; edge chips and flakes to the fitter ring. Nice quality; heavy cut glass design. We had a set of 7 of these a number of years ago (which we sold). In storage in an attic here in Newport for about 60 years. Price: $400.00.


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.
