B627 - SOLD
This is a divine vintage French silk lampshade dating from the mid 1900's.
It is a frilled and slightly faded confection and would add an authentic shabby chic finishing touch to a vintage French interior.
The lampshade is made in a gorgeous pink silk taffeta. The top of the shade is ruched and padded and under this is a fine band of passementerie. From this the silk is gathered and falls away to join a frilled wide band of exquisite silk passementerie at the bottom. This passementerie has beautiful flowers in a soft blue with green leaves and a fine gold wire thread runs along both edges.
Inside the shade is lined with a fine cream silk. Here there is a wire fitting which will fit a standard size modern lamp.
Although slightly faded all the textile on the shade is in good condition with no tears or wear and just one or two tiny marks.
The shade measures :-
33 cm (13 inches) high
50 cm (20 inches) across the bottom at the widest frill.
14 cm (5.5 inches) across the top.
Another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe.
