We carry a good selection of glass shades and chimney's.  Most antique, vintage, and reproductions use standard glass sizes.  However, there are unusual and hard to find sizes and designs.  So be sure to measure correctly before making a purchase.

 

Helpful Information:

Keep in mind.....
 .....the fitter referenced for glass shades (such as a 10" fitter) refer to the size of the shadeholder and not to the exact size of the lamp shade.  The glass shade will measure slightly under the "fitter" size to allow the shade to set in the fitter and not on top of the fitter.  So, a 10" shade will actually measure between 9-3/4" and 9-7/8".
 

"MADE IN THE U.S.A."

10" Glass Shades

Opal Ball Shades

We carry Opal Ball Shades to fit most lamps.  Ball shades are commonly used on Banquet Lamps, Organ Lamps, and many other antique and reproduction lamps.  On most old lamps such as the
"Gone With The Wind" style, it is common for the top ball shade to be slightly larger than the bottom fount (font) of the lamp.  All of the ball shades shown below have a 4" fitter and they are open at the top to allow the lamp chimney to extend above.
(These do not have a lip fitter and are not designed to hang from a 4" fixture holder)
