Small vintage chartreuse yellow lampshade
This is a truly wonderful small vintage lampshade - an absolute classic from mid last century. The frame has a small top and collar, and the base is a starfish shape - or extreme scallop ring! the fabric, a really warm chartreuse yellow chiffon, has been gathered and drawn down the length of the frame, clinched in at the top around the collar. It has been adorned with a complex golden trim of velvet and gold threads around the top ring and has added tassels along the base. Inside is a lustrous deep yellow satin lining, also gathered, The shade has a UK only light fitting which can be moved to become a ceiling shade, but it's hard to move it, and really the shade is perfectly formed for a lamp base on a desk, table or bedside. It is exquisite.
Size: height - 22cm, 25.5cm including tassels, top diameter 9.5cm, base diameter at widestpoint - 28.5cm.
Vintage condition - there are a few tassels missing, and there is paint coming away from the metal light fitting inside, and one area of lining has a tear - approx 2cm in length but barely noticeable, all in all it is excellent for its age and a true gem.
