LOUIS XIV: This is a beautifully, elegant pattern named appropriately for the era of its use. Shown in LUNA ivory in Harry Northwood – The Wheeling Years by Heacock, Measell & Wiggins. The examples displayed here, illustrates Northwood’s “pearl” iridization. #42 seen in the fitter, refers to the pattern number for the smaller size shades (4). #45 refers to the larger, central shade used in the ceiling fixture. The pattern consists of 4 ornate inverted hearts, each having a large palm-like leaf at the apex, and two at the base. Within the heart, above the leaves at the base, there is a narrow arched ridge which crosses near the center and resembles a pair of tongs. #42 measures 4 ¾” in height, and 5 ¼” in diameter at the scalloped bottom. They are iridized inside and out.
Greg Dilian, a collector from Long Island, NY contacted us following his recent (May 2011) “find” of 5 matching shades. Shortly afterwards, he found the perfect fixture for the shades at an antique lighting store on Long Island. It is a two tone metal fixture made in the U.S. in 1915, which basically matches the Northwood. manufacturing date for the shades. “ The store owner looked at the shades and asked where I had found them? He was in shock when I told him Brimfield! He estimated retail value of the set would be $600-$750; more when attached to the appropriate fixture.”

Imperial Nuart BLOCK and DAISY.
Imperial Nuart BLOCK and DAISY.

BLOCK & DAISY:  Helen Greguire called this NUART shade Imperial Daisy, but it is probably better known by the more descriptive term, Block & Daisy. It was made in both the gas & electric sizes. They have a stippled external surface with 6 narrow circular, and 18 vertical ridges that divide the surface into 6 rows of small block that encircle the shade. Each row has 18 blocks; each block with a 1/8 inch elevated square at its center. The vertical ridges extend down beyond the squares to near the scalloped, fluted bottom of the shade, each ridge ending there in a 10 pointed “daisy”. The shades measure 4 7/8 inches in height. They are iridized inside and out.
A vase was made from the same mold. It is identical to the shade, but, unlike the shade, doesn’t have the fitter end cut out. The only ones I have seen have been in ice green. (Statement, Courtesy Roy Hieger)

Imperial CORAL SHELL signed Nuart. 1920-1928
Imperial CORAL SHELL signed Nuart. 1920-1928.

CORAL SHELL: This shade was named by Helen Greguire, but collectors unfamiliar with her designation often call it Scales. Examples marked NUART have been found, confirming Imperial as the maker.  It is an attractive bell shaped shade, found in marigold and pastel marigold. The outside is lightly frosted, but otherwise smooth. On their radium interior they are covered with row upon row of overlapping small scales. They begin just below the fitter, and extend to the broadly scalloped bottom of the shade, each row getting a little larger as they approach the bottom. The shade measures 4 ¼ inches in height, 5 inches in diameter at the bottom, and has a 2 ¼ inch fitter. The Coral Shell shade is known only in the electric size illustrated. Though not common, with a little looking they can be found; occasionally in sets of 4. (Statement, Courtesy Roy Hieger).

Dean & Diane Fry, 6/11
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away.
And there was found no place for them.  And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God,
And books were opened.  And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life.
And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead  who were in them.
And they were judged, each one according to his works.  Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.  And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
(Revelation 20:11-15)
We read of a number of judgments in the Scriptures, including these:
1.    The Bema Seat of Christ, where the works of believers are judged for rewards (1 Cor. 3:1015, 2 Cor. 5:10)
2.    The judgment of the Old Testament saints (Dan. 12:1-3)
3.    The judgment of Satan and his demons (Jude 6; Rev. 20:10)
4.    The last judgment, also known as the Great White Throne judgment (John 5:22,27,29);(Rev. 20:11-15)
The final judgment will be for all those who have died without Christ.
