Selecting Ball Shades
Ball Shades were the darling of the Victorian era. These shades are most remembered for their large round shape producing more light than their predecessors. Large hand painted flowers, most often roses, defined the era. The ball style shade was used on Gone with the Wind Lamps, parlor lamps and banquet lamps. Sizes and Neck Shapes can vary:
Large ball shades are customarily used on tall banquet lamps and piano lamps.
Smaller ruffled top ball shades are used on shorter banquet lamps and some table lamps.
Ball Chimney Shade with a standard 3" base is another option for average size oil lamps.
Bottom Fitter: most ball shades have an open, straight-sided base fitting a 4" fitter shade holder.
Height: shade should be proportional to lamp. Height is measure by inserting a ruler inside shade.
Chimney height must be taller than shade. Bulge of chimney should be thin enough to slide through interior of shade base.
