This antique set of Steuben shades is bell-shaped in a brown aurene or butterscotch color with iridescent applied gold border in a zig-zag pattern. Some of the best shades made by Steuben have an applied border. They are considered technically difficult because the border is made separately and then attached to the main shade.
