Vintage lampshade - black and orange pleated chiffon and silk
This lampshade is lovely and has a surprise middle just like any sumptous dark chocolate should.. it has a drum shape frame, has pleated black chiffon on the outside, and rich dark orange silk inside.This means that unlit, it looks dark but when lit the amazing colour combination zings out. It has a gold trim around the top and added lovely glossy gold bobbles around the base. Inside the ftting is a UK one with moveable arm so it can be used either as a desk lampshade or a ceiling shade but we feel it belongs on a table lamp base. A real one-off, it will bring a big point of interest to any room.
Size - Height - 24.5cm, 26cm including bobbles, top diameter - 18.5cm, base diameter 20.5cm
Vintage condition - there are one or two snares including a 2-3cm tear on one of the metal struts (see image) a small area of glue is visble around the base where the trim has been attached, and the metal light fitting inside could be tighter, but overall it is in really fair condition for its vintage age and pedigree.
