For sale is a wonderful leaded glass boudoir shade made by The Duffner & Kimberly Company of New York, New York. This pattern is called "Paneled Diamonds" and it would be considered an arts and crafts style geometric leaded glass lighting shade for a table base. The shade stands 5 3/8" tall and is 7" in diameter at the bulge at the bottom. The very bottom has a diameter of 6 3/4". The top has a diameter of 3 7/8".
This leaded glass shade depicts an Arts and Crafts Pattern of a Diamond set in an upper and lower band of rectangular glass. The colors are vibrant as the diamond is done in a Ruby Red glass with the horizontal banks being done in a pink opalescent glass. The background that surround the diamond pattern is done in a rich deep forest or leaf green. The bottom edge has a beige opalescent scalloped border. The long top panels are done in a wonderful Kokomo translucent mottle yellow to cream catspaws glass. The top border is further accented with a honey mustard opalescent glass. There are actually 6 different colors of glass used in this boudoir shade.
This leaded glass shades is considered to be in very good to excellent condition with only 1 tight hairline in the long yellow to cream colored granite back catspaw style glass. There are 3 areas on the inside that show where 3 arms that were attached to a fitter once were. The shade is unsigned but it has all the signs and technique of a quality Duffner & Kimberly shade. The auction is for the shade only as I found a pair of these without their base. If I had the bases you would be looking at $1975 per lamp.
I would say this Duffner and Kimberly shade was made circa 1905-1912.
