Vintage Sanderson floral lampshade
Sanderson were famous for their original wonderful country fabrics in mid last century - and this lampshade with the iconic floral design was a classic accessory for any self-respecting lovely English home. The pattern is in a dusky colourway, and has blues, greens and pinks in more muted tones, although these become vibrant when lit. The frame of this lampshade is a slightly waisted empire, not a drum and is quite wide for its height. It has been lined in cream fabric meaning it will give off a soft cream glow, but with the pattern shining through the front. The top of the shade has a woven greeny gold trim and the base has the same but with a complex double looped silky fringe in green and pink, and pink thick tassels. The fitting is a UK fitting and will suit a table lamp base, a small standard and as it has a moveable arm, it can also be used as a ceiling or pendant shade. It's a true gem.
Size: Height: 21.5cnm, with tassels - 25cm, Diameter top: 21cm, diameter base: 26.5cm
Vintage condition: one small barely visible stain and various tiny spots on the outside, inside the lining has a few spots and the metal arms of the fitting are slightly worn in places but overall a lovely shade and in good condition for its age.
