A beautiful lampshade. The green of the lampshade looks great with the brass stand. Loooooove it!
And once again I have to commend Paxton Hardware for their excellent service. There was a problem with the first green lampshade I ordered, and they sent sent a replacement as soon as they could. Very impressed! I will shop here again!
Beautiful shade. Enjoy using my rewired old bridge lamp!

It is such a pleasure to deal with a company doing things right
To the lovely woman that took my order to the so so secure way it was packed I am thankful beyond measure.
My husband spent hours the day before trying to order the same shade from a company in TN. The website was soooo confusing I finally found a phone number at the bottom of their site. The woman sounded to busy to be bothered. I told her how confusing her site was and ask if she could take the order over the phone. She said they do not take phone orders but we could mail in an order. I could not believe that a company in our country did not care about customer service so I hung up and found your site.
The order was placed so quickly over the phone that I was surprised. I did not get the name of your order operator but she was great. I also received an email thanking me for the order and another when it was sent and again when it was
delivered. Wow. I put it on my lamp this afternoon and it looks great.
Again it is such a pleasure to deal with a company doing things right. You should be proud and I will be happy to let friends and family know that I have found a great company to deal with. I teased my husband that I almost wished I needed more shades you made it so easy.
