Cased Green Glass Student Shades are exquisite, both in quality and color. Historically they were used on brass student lamps and glass oil lamps. Most notably they were used in libraries and bank offices where upon they were nicknamed: "Bankers Green" lamp shades.
These cased glass student shades are hand blown. Cased glass is made by fusing two layers of glass together. Outer layer is green producing a pleasing green glow when lit. The inner layer is white. This white interior reflects light downward, providing effective task lighting. Due to the nature of any hand-blown glass, slight imperfections may occur. This glass is both beautiful and luminous. Imported.
Measuring 10" Cased Glass Student 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.
Thanks to your complete description and measurement instructions this shade is an exact match for my Grandfather's old metal oil lamp shade from the early 1900s. The original shade had been broken beyond repair during a move. The packing was exceptional. Thank you!

My shade is excellent! And this company has been very helpful to me. I am glad that I found you! Thank you!
Well wrapped glass
We were very pleased with the care taken to protect the glass shade. I removed the inner box, gift wrapped it and rewrapped the package in the same manner it was received and resent it as a gift. It made it safely to its final destination and fits perfectly. Thank you very much.
