The new lampshade cover is vegas gold charmeuse silk.



Five of the seven layers of vintage trim has been restored and reapplied to the new lampshade cover.  The gimp braid trim along the top and bottom is new.

The new custom fit silk cover and new liner was hand sewn to the lampshade frame.  The trim was applied with an adhesive.   Applying trim with an adhesive after fitting a new silk cover is a little unnerving.  Even the the slightest spec of adhesive will show on a silk cover.

The restored shade has a liner.  When I received the project shade, there was no liner.

I believe this frame to be a Stiffel lampshade.  The center of the spider wire was not stamped, but the globe fitting is indicative of Stiffel lamps.
