REVERSE PAINTED DOME SHADES
 
Diagram of Base for a Reverse Painted Shade

The advent of electricity in the early 20th century brought a new art form: table lamps with reverse painted shades. Artistic scenes were hand-painted on the inside of translucent glass shades with as much care as if done on a canvas. The images could be most appreciated when illuminated. Reverse-painted lamps were originally marketed for the upper middle class and wealthy clients.
 


Please note: 100% of the fair market value of such lamps is in the shade with the quality and detail of the painting significantly influencing the value, both then and now.

Please also note: You might be shocked by the cost of these shades, but please remember the skill and time needed to hand paint the scenes backwards and in reverse!

Also, each shade is individually hand-painted and the colors and images can vary from the photographs. In general, they tend to be brighter than those pictured.

Therefore we must insist that because each shade is uniquely created, there are NO RETURNS on these shades. Please click HERE to contact us if you have any questions before ordering.
