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.
Unfortunately, we broke the painted shade on our lamp. This shade matched the painted base close enough that most people will not notice that the top and bottom are different. Looks beautiful on our lamp.
After a long search
I broke my antique shade and wanted to find a shade that was simple and elegant. This shade was it. I’m very pleased with the shade and the service I got from Paxton.
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.
