Tam-O-Shanter Lamp Shades are uniquely shaped with a squat round bulge. Historic shape is most often referred to as a "tam lamp shade". This unusual profile complements lamps with broader bases. It has a slightly larger appearance than standard student shades. Made in USA.
This tam lamp shade is made of glass. Pink rose design is hand painted on white background. Satin finish produces a soft light when lit.
Measuring 10" Tam-O-Shanter lamp shades
Shade-fitter is the bottom edge diameter of lampshade. This measurement is typically slightly less than 10".
Shade-fitter sits in shade ring, tripod or spider for support.
Opening in shade-holder, where shade sits, will be the fitter size.
10" fitter lampshades proportionally fit: 9" - 10-1/2" lamp bases. Occasionally they are seen on taller lamps.
Lampshades are blown glass. Glass blowing techniques can cause slight differences in glass-thickness. These differences can affect bottom diameter and weight of lampshade.
If needing a pair please order together to assure match.
