To Turn of the Century Lampshades, Inc.,
the wholesale and retail source for Victorian lampshades and Victorian
We have been in business for over twenty
years, and we remain the premier source for
Victorian era lampshade kits and custom made Victorian lampshades. Our
materials are of the highest quality, and the instructions that come
with the Cinderella and Brocade kits are clear and detailed.
The Turn of the Century Lampshade was
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.
Because we pride ourselves on quality, all of our
designs and materials have been carefully selected. We make 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
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 fifty styles and priced with fringe. Beads are
available (see our colored bead section) and the amount needed for each
frame style is found in the column next to the finished shade price
