These old pleated chiffon silk lampshades are now highly collectable.
The one is a lovely shape and colour - as you can see in my photographs.
The exterior is made up of lots of delicate pleats of fine chiffon silk. The interior is also made up of similar pleats - but in a white-beige shade.
The fabric is generally nice and clean - with no rips, tears or staining. The yellow colour is currently on trend - and is unfaded on my shade.
I love the addition of the gold brocade edging top and bottom - and adore the little tassels.
We have personally owned this for many years - but we never had it on a lamp - doing a little thinning out of some "specials" from my own collection and offering them up for sale. This is one of my items that I have carefully looked after for many years - it comes from a "smoke free" interior so no nasty smells or odors with it.
This is as nice an example of one of these shades that you might find.
It has an old sturdy wire fitment inside - but will be sold with a little modern extension piece so that you can easily install it on more modern base sections.
Dimensions. the height is 11 3/4 inches. The bottom aperture is 15 x 11 3.4 inches. The top aperture is 9 x 6 inches.
We will have to post it in a large sturdy box - so that it is safe in transit and does not get damaged. This will cost £10 with Parcelforce - thsi will be applied at the checkout stage.
