Reverse Painted Glass Chandelier Lamps can be purchased from the artist, Jenny Floravita

Painted glass chandeliers were very popular during the Victorian era and Philip Julius Handel started the Handel Company in 1876 in Connecticut. He is credited with making reverse painted lamp shades extremely popular. In their time, they were more affordable options to the popular Tiffany lamps. His business thrived through out the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods. Some of my inspiration comes from these highly collectible painted glass lamp shades.
