Mica Lamp Shades are a craftsman style favored during the early 1900's. This is an arts and crafts design. Use on vintage and new table lamps. When illuminated, mica produces a warm soft ambient light. The translucent appearance and mineral flecks glow when lit.
These shades are made from natural sheets of mica. Shade frame is hex shaped with an antique finish to blend with amber color.
Lamp requires a harp or cluster stem to support lamp shade. Change height of harp respectively, if shade sits too high or low on lamp. 12" size typically fits lamp bases that are 8" - 9-1/2" in height.

- Measure Height of Lamp-base: distance from bottom of lamp base to base of lamp socket.
- Height of Lamp Shade: approximately 2/3rds height of lamp-base.
- Bottom-diameter of Lamp Shade: approximately 1”-2” less than lamp-base height. Bottom diameter should not exceed lamp-base height.
- For Safety: there should be a minimum of 3-1/2” between lamp shade and incandescent bulb unless using compact fluorescent bulbs.
- These are generalizations.........it is always best to let your personal taste be the guiding influence.
- Additional Replacement Lamp Shade Information
Replacing a Table Lamp Shade on any lamp:
- The bottom edge of the lamp shade should cover the socket but not the lamp base.
- Determining the correct lamp shade position is best accomplished by viewing the lamp on the surface on which it will be permanently placed. Perspective changes when a lamp is place high on a mantel verses lower on a table.
- Although a table lamp shade is used on lamp pipe and cluster stems the vast majority are used with a harp.
- The advantage of harps is the ability to readily switch to different heights providing easy vertical adjustment.
