Selecting Chimney Shades
Chimney Lamp Shades fit lamps with glass chimneys. Shades are manufactured on a wire form with a centered ring. This inner ring slides down over glass chimney neck to rest on bulge. When measuring chimney lamp shades consider the following:
Chimney shades have a splayed shape being wide at the bottom and narrow at the top.
Shades are measured from point to point across bottom.
14" chimney shades are used on standard size oil lamps (10"- 12" lamp base height.
12" chimney shades are used on smaller accent lamps and finger lamps.
Assembling lamps with chimney lamp shades is very straight forward as no shade holder is needed. Lamps can be either oil or electric.
