Very interesting. I like it, but it is a repro. They were never made with plastic or glass.

I live the "real ugly original version" the best, it's simple, someone with a cnc or waterjet could make it cool by making a new one and replacing the scallops with flames!

How about this one? I dont have any reference to what an OG one looks like. The old links to pictures don't work.

There have been a ton of these popping up on EBay lately. I suspect they are all fakes. Many being sold by people who are also selling antique related items. Who the heck is making these things and flooding the market?

I dont think the originals flared up like that , originals seem to flare down going by IN2VWS pics.
