lamp shade 12 inches high – Investing in antique glass lamp shades is a wonderful way to present your home that nostalgic look you have been following. Replacing an old boring, cloth shade with an art deco, Victorian, or beautiful hand painted lamp shade is such an easy process that will leave behind a delightfully noticeable difference which will lead you room by room, through your property, replacing every colour in sight.
Whether you’re trying for a rustic look, intimate, or elegant you will have no problem finding what you’re searching for. You’ll have to quantify your lamp base and your current shade if available.
You will use these measurements to ascertain whether the glass lamp shade will probably be wide enough, or too wide, for the lamp base. Typically you can try to match your antique glass shade dimensions with your present colour measurements.
You’ll also have to pay close attention to a lamps method of fastening the colour. Some lamps have a “harp”, which is a piece of metal which bends around each side of the bulb that the shade sits on and is then secured with a threaded “finial”. Other lamps expect a shade that attaches at the base of the bulb, essentially being held in place from the bulb. Another kind of lamp calls to get a shade that clips directly to the body of this bulb, though not many antique glass lamp shades utilize this method.
You can find glass shade for floor lamps also, but this design lamp cannot accommodate just any colour. You’ll have to be certain your preferred glass shade will balance properly and safely on your floor lamp.
Get as much product information as you can, along with photos, of the antique glass lamp shades you’re interested. Compare dimensions with your present colors and, if possible, email or talk with an expert at the dealership and explain to them what you have and what you are searching for. No one wants to get stuck packing and returning antique glass products if they do not have to.
