Vintage Chinoiserie 1940s Glass Shade for Standing Lamp Asian Chinese Motifs 18 Diameter


Brand Etsy

This is a vintage glass lamp shade dating to the 1940s, meant to be used with a standing lamp. It is printed on the interior with Chinese pagodas and musicians in colours of green, red and white against a clear glass background. The exterior is frosted, so that the shade casts a softer light. It is made in an unturned shell shape, measuring 18 in diameter. It is in very good condition with the exception of three tiny chips to the top edge that could be sanded down (see last two close-up photos) and a tiny one to the interior top edge of the opening - all damage is very minor. This is a great shade for a Chinoiserie or 40s era decor - wonderful size and look, not a common shade!
