Howdy folks. I ran across these unique iridescent milk glass shades. Anyone here have any leads on helping figure out their origin or maker? They came in a set of 4. They stand about 3 1/2" tall. The bigger opening has a diameter of 4" and the smaller opening is only about 1 1/16".
Thanks for looking and any help you may have.
Hi Bill, Cool shades! I think these are from the 1950's - USA, and they were meant to be used on a "MCM" ( Mid-Century Moderne) Chandelier!
I have seen other glassware in this exact configuration, and have also seen the slight iridescence of Bar Ware, ie Glasses, tumblers etc.. in the same colors. All date to the late 50's and early 60's made by US companies. You could try to search the biggest lamp and chandelier companies first - like Aladdin, Pairpoint and etc... To get started. But to find actual maker will be very difficult.
I would instead look at Goggle images under "MCM Chandeliers with glass shades" - and see what turns up!
Good Luck, they are a super nice find!
