The design possibilities with antique glass lamp shades go on forever. Whether you’re trying for a rustic look, intimate, or elegant you will not have any problem finding what you are looking for. You will need to measure your lamp base and your existing shade if available.
You may use these dimensions to determine whether the glass lamp shade will probably be broad enough, or too broad, for your lamp base. Typically you can attempt to match your antique glass shade dimensions with your current colour measurements.
You will also need to pay close attention to your lamps method of adjusting the shade. Another type of lamp calls to get a shade that clips right to the body of the bulb, although not many antique glass lamp shades use this method.
You can find glass shade for floor lamps too, but this style lamp can’t accommodate any shade. You will need to be sure your chosen glass shade will balance correctly and safely on your own floor lamp.
