I used 32 vintage map rosettes to create this beautiful little shade. Each rosette is handmade, hand cut and each has a clear glass center. As a result, light shimmers beautifully through each rosette. The vintage pastel palette works as well in the nursery as it does in the library or office.
I have a passion for interiors and for taking old, well-loved things with a history and making them new again. When you mix old and new in a room, the effect is a room that instantly becomes more unique and interesting.

Also enjoy shopping through my print line at www.etsy.com/shop/glasslionstudio . They coordinate beautifully with these lamps and lamp shades since they are created using the same vintage papers.
• Diameter top: 6 ½”
• Diameter Bottom (including rosettes): 15 ½”
• Height: 7”
• Material: Hardback, fabric covered shade – light taupe
• Rosettes: each is approximately 2 ¼” long by approximately 2 ½” in diameter
• I use paper from vintage maps, encyclopedias, books and dictionaries from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s.
• Fitter (the metal structure that attaches the shade to the lamp base): Spider/Washer – sits on the harp, secured by a finial (not included)
• Drop (Distance from the top of the shade to the center of the fitter): ½”
Canned air (found at any office supply store) works wonders to dust any lamp shade. This shade is no exception. A simple, light blast of air, as needed, will do the trick to remove any accumulated dust.
Sizing Rules of Thumb
• Shade height should be about 3/4 the height of the base.
• The bottom of the shade should be wider than the widest part of the base.
• Shade width should approximately equal the height from bottom of base to socket.
• Spider - This is the most common lamp shade fitting of the three and is usually used with wall lamps and table lamps. This type of lamp shade fitting usually has risers attached to the harp to resize the shade and boost its height.
• Uno - This lamp shade fitting does not use a harp because it is more commonly used on smaller lamps such as nightstand lamps and swing-arm wall lamps. This fitting attaches the shade directly to the lamp socket.
