Vintage Custom Restore. Lampshade Restore. Vintage Frame. Vintage Trim. The original fabric was so unusual. The original cover was a gold fine fabric like hosiery. Beautiful finish. I could not find anything even close to texture, but I was able to restore the “vintage golden glow!”
This lampshade project was a “keepsake” from my clients’ “Mother.” The lamp as a whole is gorgeous!
The liner of this lampshade was shredding.
When working on vintage projects, it is a challenge to live up to the original craftsmanship. The detail and custom work is an art. The stitches are clearly done by a skilled tailor.
All the wires have been cleaned, waxed and wrapped! The liner in this shade is ivory charmeuse silk. The cover is an old gold silk charmeuse as well. The vintage black and gold trim has been replaced. Original Technical Re-Construction Custom Restore.
