Due to age and health issues I have to part with my many personal items that have been in my family for well over 100 years. This Beautiful shade and fitter has been stored away in my attic for 60 - 70 years and has been handed down for generations. It is for a oil lamp/banquet lamp. It glows under a black light because it has uranium in the glass.
It measures 8" inches across at the top ruffles, 7" inches Tall and 5 inches at the fitter end. The shade holder is a 5" inch holder with the center hole about 2 5/8" inch and is somewhat adjustable. July 29, 1973 & May 15, 1877. This shade is in Excellent Condition with No Chips or Cracks of any Kind! I do not see any scratches either.
It does have some very minor roughness on the fitter end. The shade holder does have minor bends, patina, wear and some scratches but also is in very nice condition for being around 150 years old. I honestly do not think you will find another antique shade in better condition.
