Black Parchment Lampshades add an understated elegance to table lamps. Distinguished square bell shape is a great complement to lamps with a square base. *

These parchment lampshades are produced on a sturdy, rust resistant metal frame. The frame has a small ring, at top of shade, to sit on harp post. Exterior of frame is covered with parchment paper. The paper is stabilized and strengthened with a striking and reflective gold lining. To complete the appearance a gold taped binding is added to accent top bottom and individual sections. These harp lampshades are a vintage style. Made in USA

Guidelines for determining which Harp Lamp Shade to select

These generalizations apply to many lamps however personal taste should be the guiding influence. 

  • Height of Lamp Shade: approximately 2/3 rds height of lamp-base. (height of lamp base: distance from bottom of lamp base to base of lamp socket)
  • Bottom-diameter of Lamp Shade: approximately 1”-2” less than lamp-base height. Bottom diameter should not exceed lamp-base height. 

  • Lamp shade proportions should reflect lamp base proportions. For example: a short squat lamp will look best with a shade of similar proportions.
  • Using the same lamp shade base shape, round or square, provides a cohesive appearance.
  • If using incandescent light bulbs there should be a minimum of 3-1/2” between lamp shade and bulb to allow heat escape.
  • If the preferred lampshade size is not available, it is normally best to choose a slightly larger rather than smaller size shade.
  • Change harp height if the lampshade is sitting too high or low on the lamp.
