Rectangular Bell Lampshades add an understated elegance to table lamps. The graceful cut corner bell shape, neutral coloration and narrow width make this shade very versatile. It is a great option for narrow locations as it is slimmer than a standard square shade. Although somewhat slender, the proportions will complement a variety of table lamps and fit in most locations.
Made of buff colored parchment, this lamp shade is both handsome and beautifully crafted. It is handmade of parchment with a marbleized border that is trimmed in gold. A stiff buckram backing for stability .
Lampshade requires harp or cluster stem to support shade. Change height of harp respectively, if shade sits too high or low on lamp. If more than one lamp shade is needed please order together to insure matching. Made in USA.

- 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.
