We were lucky enough to find a collection of 10 of these very rare Bellova shades in different shades and colors. This is 2 of 10. They were produced in Czechoslovakia starting in about 1923 and were produced for the HG McFaddin Co., also the manufacturer of Emeralite lamps. They produced many different shades of glass shades in many different colors. One of the most readily identifiable features is the lace pattern painted on the tops and bottoms separated by a band of flowers, along with a bottom finial of glass. I understand that all of the Bellova shades were signed at the factory and like the signature on Steuben shades, it is quite common for the signature to have been erased when washing the glass.
The main body of this shade is a lavender color of the lace and the porcelain ceiling fitter is a matching lavender color.
The total drop as shown is 11 1/2 inches, which can be adjusted a bit shorter and much longer on a metal chain or pole mount fitter. The
width of the shade is 8 1/4 inches
