Years ago when one of our old art deco ceiling light fixtures broke I saved the removable glass bottom section.
It recently surfaced and it looked like it would make a nice shade for a table lamp. The base is 1/2” red oak lumber that is a segmented octagon of tapered sides 20” tall (8” at the bottom to 4 1/2” at the top). The lamp style could be mission, especially with the indian rosewood squares. The shade frame is walnut as are the feet.
Solvent based custom stain and water bourne polyurethane. The bulb is 25watt in a candelabra socket and provides plenty of light due to the clear prismatic glass.
