Vintage STAINED GLASS Lamp Shade Red Amber Green Blue! - eBay (item 310098093851 end time Nov-10-08 19:03:00 PST)
This vintage stained glass lamp shade features pebbled glass in red, amber, blue and green forming a cylinder 3 1/2" high and 6" across. A harp connects it to a lamp, preferably one with a heavy base. It has no maker's mark.
It's quite sturdy except for the bottom outer rim looking flaky about two-thirds of the way around the shade. There's much patina on the metal parts.
See the big lumps of lead on the inside braces? I don't know if someone hand-crafted the shade at home or repaired it. The glass is held in place with rough, rustic, hand-shaped stuff that might not be lead. If it were lead, it might weigh more, but I'm not sure.
