Ivory Mica Uno Lamp Shades add Craftsman style to traditional bridge arm floor lamps. Flecks of ivory, silver and beige mica meld creating a silvery appearance. Dark brown faux leather, braided trim provides great contrast against this silver ivory mica combination. A semi-transparent outward glow is produced when lit. The downward light, a uno lamp is most known for, is bright.
Ivory mica lamp shades are made on a copper-brown metal frame that is rust resistant. The shape is round. Special threaded uno fitter is at center top of shade. Frame is wrapped with sheet mica. These sheets are composed of mica flakes laminated together with shellac or resin. Once made, mica-sheets are rigid.
Uno lampshades are used on lamps where shade hangs down from a lamp-arm. They are referred to as bridge lamp shades.
Paxton Hardware has everything you need to refurbish an old lamp and I am quite happy with the result. Many thanks!
I had been searching all over for a lampshade to fit an old bridge lamp that was given to me by my uncle. Came across your website, ordered one up...and it arrived in no time. And it is absolutely beautiful! thank you Paxton!
Shipped amazingly fast! Love the shade for our antique bridge lamp. There is some flaking of the Mica but otherwise we are happy with our purchase.
Beautiful shade, well made - very nice product
