    Thank you for the excellent post on stained glass lamp shades. I agreed with the thought that the stained glass lamp shades refract the light instead of darkening or restricting the light as does a regular lamp shade. Also I find that stained glass lamp shades subtly enhances most any decor with an heirloom like look that is the envy of many friends.
    Another benefit of stained glass lamp shades is their value. Since most high quality stained glass lamp shades are individually handmade, no two shades are exactly alike which gives them heirloom value. Due research is needed as some reproductions use a cheap glass.
    Some stained glass lamps are made with a lighted base which can be used as a night light or an accent light. Not only are they beautiful, they are useful and to be enjoyed day or night.
    If anyone has an interest in viewing genuine stained glass lamps, I would recommend browsing and see unique lamps for yourself.
