These song bird lamp shades are made of parchment. 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. To complete the appearance a gold taped binding is added to accent top bottom and individual sections. These harp lampshades are a vintage style. Made in USA

Guidelines for determining which Harp Lamp Shade to select.
These generalizations apply to many lamps however personal taste should be the guiding influence.
Height of Lamp Shade: approximately 2/3 rds height of lamp-base. (height of lamp base: distance from bottom of lamp base to base of lamp socket)
Bottom-diameter of Lamp Shade: approximately 1”-2” less than lamp-base height. Bottom diameter should not exceed lamp-base height.
Lamp shade proportions should reflect lamp base proportions. For example: a short squat lamp will look best with a shade of similar proportions.
Using the same lamp shade base shape, round or square, provides a cohesive appearance.
If using incandescent light bulbs there should be a minimum of 3-1/2” between lamp shade and bulb to allow heat escape.
If the preferred lampshade size is not available, it is normally best to choose a slightly larger rather than smaller size shade.
Change harp height if the lampshade is sitting too high or low on the lamp.
