STRING LAMP SHADE FROM THE 50s

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's… actually a "modernistic" lamp shade from the 50s or 60s that was part of a load of goods I recently purchased. The complexity of its construction is amazing. One has to admire its creator for its imaginative design. These plastic and string creations are selling on eBay for $40 - $75 plus shipping. It's yours for only $35 less our usual "10% off" for sales from the second floor.

this is fantastic design. a real classic.
first i thought you meant string lamps like the ones, like the ones that you see everywhere now:
lightbulp + string.
this is also a designer who does such kind of lamps:
