This pretty vintage light cover or shade dates to the 1930's or 40's I believe. It came from a wonderful old Victorian~style home.
Measuring 12 1/4" in diameter, the beautiful pattern that you see is a raised design on the interior of the cover ~ the exterior is smooth. On first look, the piece has the appearance of being cased glass, however the interior has a baked~on, painted surface, which adds that touch of color. The color is in fact a bit lighter than what appears in the pictures. The center of the shade is crystal as is the decorative crimped rim.
As you can see, the cover was manufactured to be used for a ceiling fixture and has three holes to allow either chains or metal rods to be used for placement.
This gorgeous piece is in EXCELLENT condition. It is free of any chips, nicks, cracks or discoloration. There is no visible wear to the painted surface. Would even make a beautiful bird feeder!
