Lovely chartreuse 'sunburst' vintage lampshade
This is simply a wonderful and classic vintage lampshade - chartreuse yellow/green chiffon pleated expertly from the sides of the frame, pulled into the centre and clasped and sewn behind a golden trim ball. The same trim is around the top and base rings, with extr silky tassels around the base. The frame shape is a curved empire, with scalloped base ring. It has creamy coloured lining which has been placed under the struts inside, and a moveable arm fitting (see vintage condition). A true blast of sunshine when lit and a wonderful vintage item for any interior.
Size: Height: 31.5cm (12.2 ins) plus 4cm trim) top diameter: 19cm (7.5 ins) Base diameter: 33cm (13ins) at widest point (see vintage condition)
Vintage condition: overall this shade is in good condition, with the odd black spot here and there but hardly noticeable. On close inspection, it appears that the frame is a little bent (see iamge) and therefore is not truly circular at the base but this is not noticeable when in position. Although there are moveable arms in the fitting (so that it can be used with either a lamp base/small standard lamp or as a ceiling shade), they appear to need a little tlc to move! I will leave this to the new owner, if required as a ceiling shade.
