Vianne CARAMEL ('amber') cased glass, 7-inch fitter student shade

Vianne Caramel student shade

New old stock remaining from the 2005 shutdown of the Vianne Glass Co. of Vianne, France, formerly esteemed for its cased and art glass quality.

This shade is hand blown in two layers: the inner layer is thin opal for good reflectivity, and the transparent outer, thicker layer for color. The color is not merely sprayed on. This process is time-consuming and expensive. So at this price it is a consdierable bargain.

This shade's warm rich brownish color makes it perfect for #1 oil lamps, or on electical fixtures as shown here:caramel student shade
on electric lampWhen lighted, it gives a pale, but warm amber glow.
