Vintage red pleated chiffon table lampshade
This shade is so lovely - a bright and cheerful scarlet red chiffon has been expertly pleated and swathed across the curved frame, giving a wonderful appearance, especially when lit. The shade has a golden trim around the top with added silky tassels around the base ring. Inside the shade is not lined, but outside the red chiffon has been placed over another fabirc, a pale pink this time, so that the metal struts of the frame are hidden when it is lit. It has a UK only fitting and although this could be turned so that the shade can be a pendant or ceiling shade, it feels stiff and really it is perfect for a desk, table or bedside table shade. This shade appears to be the 'baby sister' of the large red pleated vintage shade we have on sale here (although this has a gold trim, the other has cream)!
Size - Height - 21.5cm with tassels 25cm, top diameter - 13.5cm, base diameter - 25.5cm
Vintage condition - there are a few little spots of white on the outside, barely noticeable, and inside one or two dark spots but again hardly visible. The paint is coming off the metal arm inside but that is totally in keeping with its age!
