Jeremy Woodoff replied to Jeremy Woodoff's discussion Painted glass lamp shade--kerosene lamp? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Thank you for the vote of confidence, Molly. I'll probably leave it like this for now, but I like for things to be authentic, so if I find an appropriate Pittsburgh base I may switch the shade to that."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Jeremy Woodoff's discussion Painted glass lamp shade--kerosene lamp? in the group Whadja Find Today
"This is what it looks like on my late 19th century kerosene lamp. I guess it's completely wrong, the shade being about 30-40 years later than the lamp and meant for an electric lamp; however, I don't think it looks bad this way. The second…"

"So I take it the ring at the top of the shade fits over the aperture disc and is held by a lip on the disc. Then the heat cap fits on top of the metal ring on the shade. I guess now I will have to look for a Pittsburgh lamp base."

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Jeremy Woodoff's discussion Painted glass lamp shade--kerosene lamp? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Thank you both for your replies. My shade does bear some resemblance to the Pittsburgh shades, and I will continue to investigate this. I can't figure out how it would be held onto a typical lamp base, however, as there is no lip at the top of…"

LB Laub replied to Jeremy Woodoff's discussion Painted glass lamp shade--kerosene lamp? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Hi Jeremy, What you have is an obverse-painted shade, meaning the decoration is on top rather than inside (then it would be reverse-painted). You might want to explore "Pittsburgh" P.L.B.&G. Co. as a possible maker. I have a larger…"

"While Handel Lamps are customarily reverse painted and much more ornate, you can see how your lamp shape could rest easily on top of a center piece to the base and be part of a regular table lamp. Most of the hurricane shades seem to have that…"

Painted glass lamp shade--kerosene lamp?

I found this white, blown-glass, 8 3/4" lampshade. It is painted on the outside in a primitive style. The top opening is 3" and has a metal ring that is either brass or nickel-plated. The bottom edge of the shade is polished, not ground. My guess is that it is made to sit directly on the chimney of a kerosene lamp; it is light weight. There are no abrasion marks on the paint indicating it ever was held in a fitter. Does this seem correct? Any idea of the date? The last picture shows the shade…See More

Unusual painted glass lamp shade

I wonder if anyone is familiar with this type of lamp shade. It is blown, white glass, painted on the outside in a rather primitive style, 8 3/4 inches in diameter with a 3 inch opening at the top. The opening has a metal ring which is tarnished and perhaps nickel plated. The lower edge of the shade is polished, not ground. It is light in weight. My assumption is that it is for a kerosene lamp, or maybe early electric lamp with a chimney, and the shade is supported directly on the chimney. It…See More

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Lillian Dunbar's discussion Pocket Watch and Bulova Wristwatch in the group Whadja Find Today
"I'm sorry to say I think the jeweler was probably correct that these are not watches that could be resold. They look as though they were inexpensive models to begin with. The watch on Etsy is way overpriced. If they have no sentimental value to…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Virginia Kobylarz's discussion Flush Mount Light Help! in the group Lighting Antique and Vintage
"This looks to me more like a 1950s or 60s fixture, not something original to a 100-year-old house.  I think you can still get glassware for them at a hardware or lighting store, probably much like the shade you removed. If the room this is in…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Randy Roberts's discussion Seth Thomas, 30 Hour Clock, looking for help, please. in the group Clocks Antique - Collectible
"Welcome to the group! You have a Seth Thomas "Round Band" model clock. Based on the style of the dial numerals, I think it probably dates from 1900-1910. There are various ways you could treat the case. The most gentle would be to…"
