Opal Ball Shades provide excellent light. When lit entire ball shade glows white. The simple white hue is often the best option if missing a decorated top shade, for a Gone With the Wind lamp.
Use opal ball shades on brass banquet or parlor lamps where a simple white shade is preferred. Lamp must have a 4" ball-shade-holder to hold shade.
Opal Ball Shades are made of white glass that is blown in a mold. These simple white ball shades have a glossy finish. Made in America.
Large ball shades are customarily used on tall banquet lamps and piano lamps. Smaller ruffled top ball shades are typically seen on shorter banquet lamps and some table lamps.
The glass globe on my antique banquet lamp got broken. During my search for a replacement, I found Paxton Hardware. They had the perfect replacement globe. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I was very happy.
