Western Union Glass Lamp Shade
« on: November 29, 2012, 06:22:34 PM »
Bob Alexander Guardfrog made this beautiful lamp shade and put it on eBay. It did not sell so we worked out a deal. I just got it today and I have to get a 6" globe adapter for my lamp, but I took a few shots of it sitting there. Bob does excellent work and I can't stop looking at it....Doug

Does he have the glas made or is it glass that is available and then he somehow finishes it?

Hi Doug, looks great and I would love to have one hanging from the bottom of my ceiling fan, which has the same shape globe, but the wording would be upside down. If he does more maybe he should do some flipped. Neat item.
