Large Vintage Standard Lampshade - chartreuse yellow
This very large lampshade has the classic chartreuse yellow colour made in a slubby silk with cream fabric lining. The trim that runs along both top and base rings is a complex weave of brown and gold thread edged in golden velvet ribbon, and has been handsewn onto the shade. The shape of this frame is a bowed empire - ie the side struts are bowed in to give this shade gentle curves. It was made for standard lamps - it has the classic large duplex ring - this means you will need a shade carrier to attach to the standard lamp - but you can also use this as a ceiling/pendant lampshade if you prefer - by using a spider fitting (both easily available from lighting shops or John Lewis around £3 each). The shade gives off a very warm light, it doesnt sing out, but adds a wonderful glow and ambience.
Size: large! top diameter: 36.5cm, base diameter: 46cm, height:39.5cm.
Vintage condition: very good outside main fabric, slight pull on trim at seam (but you wouldnt notice). The lining appears a little dirty near the top but again you wouldnt notice.
