Before. After.


My online vintage lighting store.


I saw this online. It was missing its glass shades, and I learned long ago to NEVER buy incomplete fixtures. And, what, I wondered, did the lost shades even look like? Then, I came to the last image…


….which showed the sole remaining, but heavily damaged shade! Oh! Then my heart skipped a beat. For, did I have a set of these shades in storage? Did I? Did I? Scroll down…



















I did!!!!!!!! I was amazed! Ecstatic!


And what shades they be!


It thrills me to no end to be able to resurrect this ravaged beauty. Over time, the chandelier lost its glory: the shades. But now? Time has been reversed. Glorious has been…restored.

    Ross,you have the best darned karma!! And I really want this one for my dining room! For some reason it’s simplicity attracts me. And I am a sucker for pretty glass. It would be a far improvement from the $10.00 second hand store 80’s thingie I have up now!! I like the uplighting, especially in my house which is all cedar wood walls and ceiling. I am afraid to look at the price but I must. What is this beauty listed under in your website?

      For you, I could do a little better.

    Your having preserved the shades has given a great reward. That is the reason I save nearly everything and am called a hoarder by those who see no value in what I save. Fortunately I don’t feel the need for anyone else’s approval any more.
