Welcome to the colorful world of the Turn of the Century Lampshade, also called the Victorian Lampshade. In America, the Victorian Era was called "The Cinderella of Antiques Period" as represented by the style of these elegant lampshades.

In the period between the 1960's and the 1980's, I traveled buying and selling antiques for 25 years. During this time, I had an attraction for collecting the original Victorian lampshades and bases as a persorral hobby. I have an art background and in 1982 was taught the art of maldng hand-sewn, hand dyed Victorian lampshades. Many of our styles are designed off my originals.

Because we pride ourselves on quality, all of our designs and materials have been carefully selected. We malce our own wire frames, which are powder coated and baked in an oven that gives a quality hard shell rust resistant finish.

We have two basic categories:

1 ) The Cinderella Line: This is our Top of the Line with forty (40) color combinations to choose from in custom finished shades or quality do-it-yourself kits. Each color combination has two colors with a crepe back satin as the base fabric for its first color and a second color that is a sheer chiffon or Georgette that makes the pleated fans and rosettes. Hand dyed floral lace, top braid, accent trim, and variegated fringe compliment these two colors.

2) The Brocade Line: This line has a floral pattern embossed in the fabric and is available in fourteen colors with two different fabrics and designs to choose from as seen and described in the Brocade section of the catalog. This shade has one color and is offered in either a custom finished shade or a quality do-it-yourself kit.

All custom shades and do-it-yourself kits are available in over f~fty styles and priced with fringe. Beads are available (colored bead flyer) and the amount needed for each frame style is found in the column next to the finished shade price list.

We believe our product sells itself and are aware of the opportunities for a successful business of your own. Our wholesale department offers a complete brochure for the entrepreneur.

We Wish you a rewarding experience.
