Set of 8 silk pleated vintage lampshades
This lovely set of lampshades - there are 8 in all - have been made using top quality cream/oyster silk, gathered down the small empire frames and then bound at the top and base rings with matching silk binding. Inside, the shades have been lined with a cream fabric, again expertly pleated down the frame. The shades have candle bulb fittings so they clearly were made for a chandelier or as wall lights, but these fittings can be used on any desk or table lamp base given you acquire a candle bulb. We would recomend LED or cool to the touch eco bulbs as the shades will be positioned so closely. They are a wonderful set of shades, some have issues (see images and description below) but overall are absolute gems.
Size - height - 10.5cm, top diameter - 7.5cm, base diameter - 13cm.
Vintage condition - most of them are in great condition, but a few have spots on the outise, one in particular (image attached of this one) and in places there is rust or glue? on show but hardly noticeable. Inside things are perfect - great unblemished linings with perfect light bulb fittings. Overall they are wonderful.
