Offering a superb quality English Victorian etched and frosted banquet lamp shade. It is deeply etched with three Renaissance Scenes set in panels around the shade. A ruffled top with frosted and clear bands. Each scene is separated by a row of raised bell flowers.
The deeply etched scenes are framed in raised frosted scrolls. Condition is very good with a small chip on the fitter end, as pictured. The fitter measures 3 5/8" and the shade is 9 1/4" tall and 6 1/2 across the widest point.
5 1/2 across the ruffled top. This is the best shade of this type that I have seen in my 40 plus years of collecting antique oil lamps and antique shades.
