Art Nouveau Snail Lamp with Art Glass Shade

This new Art Nouveau styled metal snail lamp is available with a variety of new art glass shades which form the shell. The shade shown here is blue iridescent with millefiori sections and white trailing vines smoothed into the surface. Other shades include plain gold iridescent and plain blue iridescent. The new shades are extremely thick, typically 1/4" or more at the bottom rim. Two metal spring clips hold the shade; original period lighting is more securely held with set screws. This new lamp is not a copy of a specific original lamp but rather a copy of the general Art Nouveau style such as the vintage example shown in Fig. 3. The new lamp and shade wholesale at $145.
