Dusky pink pleated chiffon vintage lampshade
This is a wonderful example of a true vintage classic lampshade pleated to a sunburst pattern. The frame is a drum with curves, the chiffon being pleated down and around its two sides, and the front and back giving the 'sunburst' design. There is a silky matching-pink gimp trim running along the top, base and vertically, with a 4cm double looped silky fringe along the base ring. Inside, the shade has been lined with a matching pink fabric, meaning that when lit, the colour that shines out is a really warmy peachy pink. The shade has a UK light fitting, with a 'moveable arm' meaning it can be used as either a standard lampshade, or a large desk lampshade as well as a ceiling or pendant shade (however, as the arm is quite stiff, I have not tried to move this). This shade would look amazing wherever it is placed and would certainly be a talking point!
Size: Height - 25.5cm plus 4cm trim, top diameter: 31cm at widest point, base diameter: 30cm. Stock level: 1
Vintage condition: this shade has issues: there is some areas of staining on one side (please see photo) and fringe (please see photo). The moveable arm light fitting is rusty, and currently it is set for a standard or large desk lamp base. The lining is a little baggy in one area. However its still a wonderful lampshade and a true antique.
