For your pleasure, I offer a miniature oil lamp shade. This shade is known as the Rose Petal shade by many collectors and was made late in the 19th century by Consolidated Lamp Company. The lamp is pictured in the first volume of the Frank & Ruth Smith Miniature Oil Lamps book, Figure 380. It is milk glass with a satin finish on the outside and pretty light yellow background paint, fading to the white near the bottom. One side has a spray of vines and leaves with a single purple violet. The opposite side has just the delicate vine and leaves.
The shade has the standard miniature fitter of two inches. It is about four inches wide at the widest part and approximately two and three-quarters inches tall. Both the top and bottom rims are factory ground. When I enlarged the picture of the top rim I noted a shiny spot and I think it might be an
extremely small flat chip but could be from the grinding. I did not notice it at all until I enlarged the picture. Any white spots on the shade is reflection. I noted one on the violet. Check my shop for other items of interest and send an email if you have any questions.
