Oval Drum Lampshades offer a neutral appearance with a little pizazz. Mottled buff background is accented by a light brown and gold stripe border. Oval shape is useful in areas of limited depth. It is a great choice for lamps with an oval base as it mimics the oblong shape.
Oval Drum Lampshades are made of buff colored parchment. Each is handmade of parchment with a marbleized border that is trimmed in gold. They are produced on a sturdy, rust resistant metal frame. The frame has a small ring, at top of shade, to sit on harp post. Exterior of frame is covered with parchment paper. The paper is stabilized and strengthened with hard white buckram (a coarse linen lining) for added strength. These oval drum lampshades are both handsome and beautifully in appearance and craftsmanship. Made in USA*
A small 1/2" ring fitter is at center top of a harp lamp shade frame. This ring sits on post at top of harp and is secured by a lamp finial.
These generalizations apply to many lamps however personal taste should be the guiding influence.
