A very nice example of an original Edwardian, Flapper Era textile antique / vintage lampshade, c. 1910 - 1930's.


This style of boudoir lamp shade was often used on headboards, bed frames, vanities and mirrors and can still be used in a similar manner today.


The shade is in very nice vintage estate condition.   The pink interior liner, which I believe to be a very fine cotton, appears strong, stable and clean with no fading and just one pencil point size light brownish speck on back panel.  There are two tiny holes to the pink liner; one pinhead size & one sharp pencil point size.  They are located close together on front panel, however they are directly behind the center exterior flowers, so they would not be visible from the front, even when lamp was illuminated.


The pleated teal silk chiffon also appears quite nice and clean, with just two very small holes, also located in close proximity on the lower right side panel.  See image #5.


Some of the pink ribbon that was wrapped around the back head board hooks / arms and the interior socket holder have come unwrapped, as can be seen in the images above, but similar period ribbon can easily be used to correct, if buyer desires.  All other decorative elements, including pink liner, pleated silk chiffon, lace and ombre ruche ribbon remain securely attached..


The variegated ruche ribbon, velvet flowers and metallic lace all appear to be in nice vintage condition, with just some slight wear here and there to the tiny single strand of multicolor silk braid interwoven through the metallic lace.  The colors of all the textile and passementerie elements remain quite rich and vibrant.  The metal frame work is structurally sound and retains its original shape, with no tweaks, bends, etc.


Original antique and vintage textile lamp shades are certainly becoming harder to find, especially in nice, usable condition, as is this extremely nice example.


Please Note:  The metal frame on this shade includes the original interior holder/slot for easy installation of an electrically wired pull chain light socket.  See image #3.
