Thanks, Smoky, for posting this lovely German Nativity lampenschirm (lampshade).
How beautiful is that?
You'll find a reference to it in my Lamp Crèche Blog.
On your images and on my blog page you see the Nativity lampenschirm illuminated by a kerosene lamp. But I find that thought rather scary, and would opt an LED battery-operated candle, instead.
Of course, how brilliant is using the Nativity Lampshade on the base of your Christmas tree?
I don't print it for now and I don't recommand to use the kerosene lamp too in use LOL. Probably try print-it on 13x19 inches or 11x17 cardstock (Epson) with a EPSON Stylus Photo 1400 inkjet printer (6 inks) or for test on an Brother MFC-J6510DW (Black ink & 3 inks colors)(max 11x17 print) but with 11x17 scanner.
In december I begin to make the German Nativity lampenschirm (lampshade) but some pieces missing. Maybe a other sheet somewhere.... I begin make some research. I try Google in german language (LOL). I make this in others languages too with some keys words. I retreive on a site for Petrolium lamp collector (rare piece) the lampshade on one lamp. I contact with email Ernst Frei. I'm not sure if it respond because the forum date where I retreive the info its old, very old. January 22, 2013 and he respond the 23 january 2013 and send me all the files (4 files in total pdf format).
Sheet number 4
All files in pdf format:
All sheets are in A3 format.
