Art Deco Glass Light Fixture Shades

You would have loved the estate sale I found these glass fixtures in. Of course, if you like estate sales where it looks like a stampede ran through, which I most certainly do. It’s thrilling. The basement was littered with all kinds of vintage glass shades leaning precariously on the edges of old wobbly card tables and shelving or they were already lying dead on the concrete floor in pieces. Poor guys wobbled right off and the stampede didn’t help.

What this house lacked in safety, made up for in its beauty. I actually had to leave the attic because for some odd reason I was getting dizzy. Must’ve been the slanted ceilings on top of all the goodies I could’ve easily crushed underfoot. Here are a few of the glass shades I found.

This vintage art deco glass shade is white and clear with ribbing and a domed top. It does have staining (some probably permanent) and will need to be cleaned. There is also chipping around the fitter.

This looks awfully similar to the old shades found on page 26 of this 1937 Sears Catalog. I’d say “D” is the closest.
