Green Cased Glass Lamp Shades are the go-to-choice for antique student lamps. This shade is beautiful both lit and unlit. When illuminated, the white interior reflects light downward, lighting task surfaces for reading and writing. Outwardly a welcoming green glow is seen. The royal green color is pleasant, harmonizing with brass, glass and wood surfaces. Embossed ribbed shape adds additional interest.
These cased glass lamp shades were traditionally used on desk lamps in universities and banks. Due to their popularity the color is often referred to as "Banker's Green".
Cased glass student shades are made by layering green and white glass together. The finished appearance is glossy green with a white lining.
Measuring 10" Green Ribbed Cased Glass Lampshades
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.
