There are stars you haven't seen and loves you haven't loved. There's light you haven't felt and sunrises yet to dawn. There are dreams you haven't dreamt and days you haven't lived and nights you won't forget and flowers yet to grow. There is more to you that you have yet to know. — Gaby Comprés, Gaby Comprés: Poems

Great post from @morsemuseum.
I’ve never seen this technique before and it’s so cool😍!
The Handel Company of Meriden, Conn. (1885–1936) is today best known for its reverse-painted glass lampshades. This superb example, a recent gift to the Museum, is now on view in "Lamps and Lighting—Tiffany and His Contemporaries." The flowers and butterflies here are painted by hand on the interior of the shade to be viewed for special effect through the glass. The exterior on this lampshade has a “chipped,” lightly sanded finish to give additional depth to the painting. In reverse painting, artists must be careful to paint first what the eye will see. They work in layers, applying their brushes first to the details and then to the background, the reverse of traditional painting. The Museum’s lamp, just over 25 inches tall, was a popular model featured in an advertisement for the company in the May 1919 issue of Scribner’s Magazine.⠀
