CLEAR RIBBED & ETCHED ART NOUVEAU. KEROSENE OIL LAMP GLOBE BALL SHADE. This listing is for the GLOBE ONLY. Are to peak your imagination and/or display purpose. The ancillaries are not part of this listing.
This shade is in excellent condition - no chips or cracks. It does have the usual air bubbles and inclusions associated with glass this age. The top rim is immaculate and the fitter rim has negligible minute flea bites. This globe is impressive without being overwhelming with four repeating cameos in an Art Nouveau design. The photos really do not do this globe justice.
The etching is a little uneven in places. This shows as whiter than the rest of the etching on this shade. I have not come across this before but looking through Jewelers glasses the etching appears coarser and deeper which may account for the variation.
Even though it is barely noticeable this can be turned to the back if you prefer. There is one small area where the etching has been missed which I now can't find even though I found it earlier. Mm 7 5/8 (widest point). Please view the photos carefully as they form a major part of the description.
