SLIGHT SECOND Iconic MCM ATOMIC RED 50s Barkcloth Vintage Fabric Lampshade.

So I had a custom request for a small lampshade in this fabric but when I did a light check I spotted a flaw/mark in the fabric ( last picture) obviously I remade another for my customer ( who was delighted) but this needs a home at HALF price! BARGAIN ( NO RETURNS though )

This fabric is over 60 years old and is very lightly worn but still bold enough to make an impact - but then you are in the wrong shop for brand new anyway, I mainly use vintage and recycled fabrics!

Drum Lampshade: 15 cm dia/wide by 18 cm high .The pattern is not particularly directional , shown here on a lamp but could also be ceiling hung.

The drum style lampshade is made with new white coated metal rings . The lampshade inner lining is made from UK supplied PVC - Supplier specs are : ' 300micron thickness ,Excellent tear resistance. Anti-static treated to minimise attraction of dust.UV stabilised - Anti Yellowing. Engineered for lampshade making, passed the glow wire test carried out by the Lighting Association.'

POSTAGE AND PACKING medium parcel , £7 p&p in the UK - I wrap in bubble wrap and/or plastic also I put a ring of strong corrugated cardboard around lampshade for addition support and post in a cardboard box. If you order more in sizes that can be nested one inside the other you will only pay one set of postage.


A great lampshade made from one of my many wonderful vintage fabrics at my Cotswold studio
