Large vintage pleated cream lampshade
This amazing lampshade hails from France and is quite unique. Made using chiffon-type fabric, there are pleats running at an angle all around the front of the shade, and inside too. It has been topped with a complex silky trim and around the base the same trim has an added silky fringe, and there are trims along some of the downard pleats. The frame is lovely - scalloped both top and base rings. It has a duplex fitting meaning it can be used either as a ceiling/pendant shade (where you will need a spider fitting) or as a standard lampshade (you will need a shade carrier for this) - both fittings are available in this shop. Original and lovely, it will give a lovely warmth when lit.
Size: Height - 30cm, top diameter - 36cm, base diameter - 46.5cm
Vintage condition - overall very good, with darker staining here and there but only condusive with age (see image of trim) and not really visible
