White Glass Student Lamp Shades were a favorite of rural America. These student lamp shades were predominately used in the late 1800's. The simple white design was economical to make, as no decoration was added. And most importantly they provided great light.  

These student lamp shades are made of glossy white milk glass. The simple white is very comfortable choice. It is clear white both unlit and lit. Use on lamps with a 10" shade ring, tripod or spider to hold the shade. USA made.

Student lamp shades were seen on Rayo, Student and Rochester lamps. The straightforward design, classic student shape, flat top and glossy white make these ideal replacement lamp shades for antique and vintage lamps.

This white glass lamp shade is beautiful both lit and unlit. Click small image to view this shade lit, on a beautiful pair of rayo lamps restored by a customer.

Other White Glass Student Lamp Shades:

Measuring 10" student lamp 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.

This lampshade replaces (perfectly) one of my mother's that I broke some 55 years ago and could never find the proper replacement for. The wonders of the internet! I found Paxton Hardware from here in Nova Scotia, Canada. Excellent service.

Beautiful Shade made my lamp complete

I was in a fix because I broke the original lamp shade on my beautiful lamp. Looked everywhere for something to replace it. Finally found Paxton Hardware and located this awesome shade which was perfect. When I receive the shade it was PERFECT! I love it and it looks great with my lamp. Glad I found Paxton.
