PAINTED GLASS SHADE : DOOR ROMAN SHADES
Painted Glass Shade
- The term stained glass can refer to coloured glass as a material or to works made from it. Throughout its thousand-year history, the term has been applied almost exclusively to the windows of churches and other significant buildings.
- Glass on which special paints (containing frit) have been applied in illustration or decorative pattern and then heated in a kiln to a temperature high enough to fuse the pigments permanently to the glass surface. The modern version of the original medieval "stained glass."
- Examples of painted glass windows from the eleventh century are preserved in the Augsburg Cathedral in German. Glass painting is the original decorative technique for windows, and the process has not changed drastically through the centuries . Painting involves a good deal of steps.

Vintage Swirl Heavy Glass Light Shade
Beautiful clear heavy glass shade for a ceiling fixture, don't believe this would have been for a chandelier because of the weight. Weighs over 2 1/2 lbs. Would make an awesome light fixture or candle holder. The light just shines through the swirls in the glass. Has a painted brass ring around the bottom. Great vintage architectural piece.
VINTAGE GLASS LIGHT SHADE
Thrifted at a charity shop for just €1, should have taken before pictures, as this was in a shocking condition, just filthy and paint flecks too. I actualy thought it was a greenish colour. Can't wait till hubby puts it up in the front room.
