"I would have bought it too. I am a sucker for old books and old prints. My biggest issue is I ran out of wall space a long time ago. I need to start parting ways with all of my impulse buys.  Thanks for sharing."

"You might try cleaning the sculpture with a poultice. Make a paste of hydrogen peroxide (bleach substitute) and powdered chalk (whiting). You can add some detergent to that. Apply about 1/4" thick, cover with plastic wrap for a day, remove the…"

"The Night Before Christmas," 1883 edition

Just in time for Christmas, I found at the local flea market for $10 this 1883 edition of "The Night Before Christmas" by Clement Clark Moore. It is complete, with hard, bevel-edge covers, gold-edged covers and pages, no tears, pretty clean, little if any foxing, but 5 of the 21 pages have tape at the binding. The sold prices on eBay vary a lot depending on condition, but even for this condition I think $10 was a pretty good price!…See More

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Patrick's discussion Can anyone tell me more about this clock? in the group Whadja Find Today
"Junghans was one of the largest German (Black Forest) clock manufacturers The business began in the 19th century, and I believe they are still in business today. Your clock case looks like mid-century modern meets Brutalism,perhaps from the 1970s,…"

"Thanks, Tom. Not having received any replies to this post, I reposted it in "Wadja Find Today," and it was identified as likely being a product of the Pittsburgh Lamp, Brass, and Glass Co. As such, it would be a shade for an early electric…"

Jeremy Woodoff replied to Molly's discussion This is a decorative commemorative plate...where is it from? What is it? in the group Whadja Find Today
"1851 was the year of the Great Exhibition in London, but the number is probably just a coincidence."

"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…"

Molly replied to Jeremy Woodoff's discussion Painted glass lamp shade--kerosene lamp? in the group Whadja Find Today
"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
