Custom Finished Shades
1. The Cinderella Line: This is our top of the line shade we started with which best represents the true Victorian Lampshade. You have about 75 styles, 30 color combinations and 30 styles of beads to choose from. Each color combination has two colors. A crepe back satin is the base fabric and sheer georgette makes the pleated fans and rosettes. Hand dyed fringes, trims and laces compliment the two colors.
2. The Candied Shade: was also a style of the Victoria era, sometimes referred to as the sandpaper shade or sugar shade. They were usually hand painted then covered with tiny sand grit size glass beads. We use a high quality transfer design commonly used on china and ceramics. There are thousands of designs, but we carefully pick floral designs that complement the panel size and color combinations available. It is a very lengthy process. When the light is on it gives you a rich photo quality design and depth. The candied panels are usually placed where we put the pleated fans or rosettes.
