This is very similar to R-359, but it is not the same shade. I think the amber lamp is of newer manufacture. Looking at the grinding at both openings, they are rough and crude. The older lamps had grinding, that's for sure, but this one looks like it was done with a rock.

This is model number 110 Owl Candlelite by Westmoreland, c. 1979. One of the best indicators is the base diameter. At 2.5 inches, it won't fit in a pyramid cup.

I have an idea that some of these owl shades were made by Brook Glass (Brookside?) of Wellsburg , WV. If my memory is correct, I saw owl shades there that were in vaseline and ruby. At the time I didn't think that the glass was of good quality.
