Red Rib Cased Glass Lamp Shades are a striking ruby color with a glossy finish. Use when restoring antique and reproduction hurricane lamps. Shade has ribbed shape with a flat top. This ribbed style is often used as replacements for Rayo, Rochester, glass and brass hurricane lamps.
These cased glass student shades are hand blown. Cased glass is made by fusing two layers of glass together. Outer layer is red producing a pleasing red glow when lit. The inner layer is white. This white interior reflects light downward, providing effective task lighting. Due to the nature of any hand-blown glass, slight imperfections may occur. This glass is both beautiful and luminous. Imported.
Measuring 10" Red Rib Cased Glass 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.
