An Original Victorian PARIS shade for an oil lamp, clear glass at the base, matt finish on the top.

This shade is unusual as it has a smaller than normal bottom fitting being 3 1/4 inches in diameter. The overall diameter of the shade is 8 3/4 inches and the height is 7 1/4 inches. It has a turned top lip. No chips or fleabites anywhere is the glass.

This shade would be ideal for a lamp fitted with a Kosmos or similar type burner. Our last photo shows this shade on a normal sized oil lamp for demonstration only.
