Rust chiffon pleated vintage lampshade
This is a rather lovely and unusual vintage lampshade. The rusty/mid brown chiffon has been pleated down a large almost-straight drum frame, and then topped and tailed with a cream silky braid and base trim. Coffee and cream springs to mind - the tassels at the base alternate in pale brown and cream in colour. Inside, although not lined, there is an off-white fabric, also pleated but underneath the outer chiffon. The frame inside has not been painted and therefore the bare copper wires match with the outer fabric colour. This shade has a duplex fitting meaning the shade can be used with a standard lamp (a shade carrier is required) or as a ceiling lamp (a spider fitting is required). Even if brown is not your colour, this shade will bring warmth to any interior and match most colour ways. Really lovely.
Size: Height - 35.5cm, Diameter base: 41cm, diameter top: 31cm.
Vintage condition: there are small nicks in the chiffon but mainly where the seams meet and therefore only on one side. Some of the base braid looks a little rusty but overall it is really lovely
