This is a nice as well as scarce ruby glass shade for hanging lamp. It is ready to hang in your fixture! Vintage or Antique Ruby Glass Shade for Hanging Lamp w/ Hand-Painted Roses.RUBY GLASS w/ HAND-PAINTED ROSES Ca. THIS IS A GUARANTEED GENUINE 19TH OR 20TH CENTURY RUBY SHADE FOR A HANGING LAMP! This shade has some age to it, but I cannot say whether it is antique or "merely" vintage. The color is throughout the glass, NOT flashed on, and the glass is rather thick. On the inside surfaces of the shade, there are hand-painted roses in a gray or dark silver color--they look quite good when illuminated from within. These may or may not be original, but they are well-done. There is roughness on the bottom opening, but nothing I would identify as fleabites, much less as chips, and no cracks or breaks.
It is approximately 13.75 inches maximum diameter, so it would fit in a standard 14 inch fitter. It is 7.25 inches tall, and the upper opening has an internal diameter of 5 inches and an outside diameter of just under 5.5 inches. I can do anything they would require of me, and probably faster, as my aim to is have satisfied customers.
I'm not smart enough to tell anyone what will and won't appreciate in value, but I do know that. A thing of beauty is a joy forever. OK, not literally forever, because none of us will be around on earth that long, so we should store up treasure in heaven (Matthew 6: 19-20). But while doing that, consider what things of beauty we can afford to have around in the here and now, things that we can be stewards of for a time, and then have the joy of passing on to someone else.
