For sale is a slag glass bent panel shade made during the era of Handel and Bradley & Hubbard. I'm not sure of the manufacturer, but it is similar to a Handel slumped glass panel shade. The shade has some size to it as it stands 7 5/8" tall and is 9" in diameter. This shade has a 4 1/8" fitter ring and was designed to be either used as a Newel post light or a shade pointed up in a kerosene burning lamp. If you have a fitter ring that is 4 1/4" in diameter this shade will work.

The shade displays a wonderful Tulip shape with beautiful caramel honey beige opalescent stained glass. There are 6 panels in the shade and each has been slumped or bent and wrapped in a brass channel and soldered together. The outside and inside texture of the glass is smooth. Between these panels is decorative stamped brass Acanthus leaves & flower banding hiding the soldered joints. The color is superb as it varies in different hues around the shade. These style shades were very popular in the Victorian era and the age of the glass dates it as such. These were displayed in the "Parlor" section of the home.

The shade is considered to be in excellent condition as none of the panels have any cracks. The glass is clean and appears to have been well taken care of through the years. The shade is unsigned as is common with these. I fully guarantee this to be a vintage shade as it was made circa 1890-1910.
