Item:352949176852I have to admit it took me a while to realize what this was because I was not used to seeing antique American Arts and Crafts items in the South, but this great find is a basement find from an Atlanta estate and is a diminutive Japanese wicker shade lined with a silk covered wire frame matching exactly all of the examples of the Japanese wicker lamp shades used by Gustav Stickley in the early 1910’s. I imagine this originally was created for either a buffet lamp or possibly a student desk or boudoir lamp that was banished to storage as time went on, being preserved in the steamer trunk where I found it bundled together with French Art Deco ribbons purchased prior to1931. In great original condition, there are 6 small breaks in the wicker that were glued back together at some point, and since there are a few holes in the silk at that area I guess it fell over and was damaged at some point in time, but that just helped to keep it together and in near perfect condition and you can’t find the break area unless you really look and that could be easily touched up to conceal it. Measuring 5 inches across at the top and 7 inches across the bottom, this shade is just over 3 and 3/4 inches tall and has a slightly larger than 2” opening at the woven top. Perfect to complete that antique Stickley lamp in your collection, this is a very rare find...just google it, you’ll see. Without a shipping box or packing materials this piece weighs 3 ounces.Condition:All Original with 6 side breaks in one area repaired at some point.
