These are a set of 5 Chandelier Contemporary Lamp Shades. The vintage lampshade covers were in mint condition, even the styrene liners were great. The wires connected to the top and bottom of the shades were letting loose from the actual shades. Not all the shades were having issues. To keep the set looking consistent, all shades were trimmed top and bottom.
These particular candlelight shades have “Coolie” wire fittings. The wire fitting sits on the socket of the bulb. These small coolie fittings fit a candlelight bulb. I am sure the reduced size of the fitting played a huge part in keeping the shades from deterioration from high heat.
