by Early A. Consternation.

This book is a compilation of the illustrations from a collection of early lighting fixture manufacturers' catalogs issued between 1900 and 1925. Most stained glass hobbyists and professionals have no access to old stained glass lamp shade catalogs. Many photographs of fine stained glass lamp shades are shown in expensive books, but the books are not readily available to the general public.

The primary purpose of this book, as with any idea book, is to suggest basic themes or designs which can be adapted to, or modified into more appropriate schemes.

Each of the facing pages gives, in addition to dimensions, some other details, such as the number of individual pieces of glass. This information is included to give you an idea of the basic limitation of the design. A lampshade which was originally built as 24" in diameter may not adapt readily to, for instance, a 12" diameter shade because of the detail involved. Observing this note of caution, one can take almost any other liberty one desires as far as transferring sizes or shapes from one application to another.

64 Pages, 240 illustrations. 8-1/2" x 11".
