(A) How cute is this, and how warm and inviting the light that transmits through the opalescent glow of the shade? Petite, just hanging down 7 1/2 inches, the same across. For a closet, a small hallway, wherever! The glass hangs by three adjustable chains, slightly off balance in my photo. Use any size bulb you want, just adjust the chains to keep it hidden.

(B) Moving right along to a few short American fixtures, this classic wedding cake (upside-down, get it?!), nicely ribbed, stepped and decorated, "takes the cake." Oooooo, sorry! It's about 14 inches long and the metal fitter's been rechromed. (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)



(C) I've got a pair of these cuties... the glass has a nice bit of opalescence to it, so the light is warm. They're about a foot long, six across. With a new chromed fitter. (e-mail Jack to start the conversation...


(D) The glass on this fixture is smoother than any baby's hinder, that much I'll venture. It is so beautifully made it will knock you back into last week once you have it in your hands. And the light that emanates from it is equally splendid -- I guess there's some vaguely opalescent quality to the glass; plus you'll get a largely shadowless light. Well, this is all my own exalted opinion, and I'm far from impartial! I put the mounting apparatus together out of new parts and had them plated in a brushed nickel. I'm not displeased with the results. The fixture hangs down exactly 17 inches from the ceiling. Prediction: you will adore having this in your life!!!

Ken and Jeff's lives are brighter, crisper, and closer to enlightenment, now that they're basking in this glow! SOLD!! And, if you're still reading and aren't too discouraged, I have three identical fixtures in the works, with shades that are about 9 or 10 inches across. I can fashion the rod to hang at any length, "Custom Jack" a votre service! (e-mail Jack to start the conversation...




(E) Fancifully etched panels of glass hanging from a hexagonal brushed nickel French flush-mount fixture from around 1925. It's 10 1/2 inches top to bottom and 8 1/2 inches across at the top.

SOLD to Mary, two panels BROKEN by UPS! I still have the top part if you want to buy it and make your own glass pendants. (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)



(F) Rather a nugget, no? An American 20's shade joins forces with a 20's French hanging apparatus, which I've had nickel-plated to look at spiffy as it does. It hangs about 6 inches long.

This nugget found its way into Janet's jewelry box! SOLD!!




(G) This blazing beauty is bound to buoy and bolster your ... spirits. It hangs about a foot and is a little wider than a foot. I've upgraded the metal's original (dull, boring) bronze finish with a bright shiny new nickel finish, resulting in a sparkling bit of "jewelry for the home," n'est-ce pas? (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)



(H) Robert probably designed this beauty; with such stellar Art Deco motifs could it be otherwise? I've created the hanging apparatus, and I'm ready to stand up and take credit for that! It hangs about 20 long, 8 across. Priced to move out! (e-mail Jack to start the conversation)
