This beautiful lampshade was found in the crawl space of a Home on the Historic Register in Centerville, Utah. The crawl space was dry but had no protective wrap and was under other objects.
The was covered with dust. All the panels had been hand painted. The center “cameo” is a picture of a bird, maybe a dove. The lampshade cover was sealed with a clear hardening finish.
I swept the historic lampshade using a computer vac and various brush and crevice fittings.
I was able to remove the cover in one piece. My client is using the historic cover in a framed display.
Attached is a link to a “Page” with more information and pictures.
Thank you for your time and interest!
