Eggshell Silk Uno Lamp Shades are an outstanding choice for both iron and brass floor lamps. Vintage bell shape and silk material are reminiscent of original uno lamp shades, used in the mid-20th century. Soft eggshell color is a quiet, comfortable hue both lit and unlit. When lit, lampshade emits a pleasing outward glow and a downward bright light for task surface.
Uno lamp shades are finely tailored from silk-like Shantung fabric. They are lined with a reflective off-white satin-material. This reflective fabric is ideal for bridge lamps where light is directed downward for task work. Shades are self bound top and bottom with matching silk. The metal, rust resistant frame is round. A threaded uno fitter is at center of frame. These uno lamp shades are an excellent quality, suitable for antique floor lamps. If you need a pair of shades, please order together to make sure they have the same fabric dye lots.
Fitter: This lamp shade has a special threaded uno fitter is at center top. Use on bridge arm lamps where lamp shade screws directly onto socket. It is frequently seen on vintage floor lamps.
Compatibility between Bridge Lamp-shade and Lamp-socket
Uno-threads, on new and old lamp sockets, can vary slightly.
Most sockets and shades will thread together, however occasionally the threading on some sockets is not compatible.
To insure compatibility, between threads on uno lamp shade and threads on. uno socket, it is best to purchase socket and lamp shade together.
I have been looking for a long time for a shade for a lamp from my grandparent's generation. This is a brass floor lamp with a rather orange finial. Real brass. real heavy. The shade screwed onto the receptacle for the bulb. You will never find one of these at a big box store, nor at a lamp store that mainly sells new fixtures. Paxton had the exact thing I needed. Looked and worked just like the original which must be at least 85 years old. Came promptly and was wrapped like you would not believe. I ordered a new receptacle just in case, but I haven't had to use it yet as the shade fit the old one perfectly!
