Screw on Uno Lamp Shades are used when restoring old bridge arm floor lamps. These vintage lamps mimic those popularized in the 1900's. Hence bridge lamps have a horizontal arm which extends from the upright column. They use a special uno-threaded lamp socket which is attached to the arm end, pointing downward. A uno lamp shade screws directly onto the lamp socket. The lamp shade hangs down once attached to the socket. A socket-swivel is often used with the socket. This swivel enables positioning of the lamp shade for task lighting. Bridge lamps provide excellent light for reading and task lighting as light is directed downward. Please see our tips an techniques page for help restoring bridge lamps.
