Measuring 10" Decorated Melon 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.
This is a great shade. When my other one broke I was very upset. But when I came upon Paxton Hardware I was relieved to find just what I wanted. The best part was when I got the shade, which came very quickly, and put it on my Rao lamp it looked fabulous. I kept returning to the living room to look at it, so cute, and just perfect.
Lovely Lamp Shade
We had inherited a lovely, antique lamp but unfortunately the old, glass shade got broken. I wanted to keep the lamp, but I had no idea how to find a new shade. My husband from Paxton on line, and I was delighted with all of the choices available. I ordered a lovely shade that kept the feel of the old one but provided more light. It arrived promptly in perfect condition and fits the lamp exactly I will keep Paxton in mind should I need another shade like this one.
