You are looking at a gorgeous pair of French lampshades for a small boudoir lamp. I purchased them from an elderly French woman many years ago (along with the appliqué, which is listed separately).
The center features pleated creamy beige silk chiffon, with 1 ¾” wide antique gold French metallic scalloped trim along the top and bottom edges, with 1 ½” long antique gold metallic fringe at the bottom. There are small cream & pink silk rosettes along the center portion of the trim, as well as green chenille type flowers as well. Each shade is lined in cream silk. The shades have a round wire insert, which you place on top of the light bulb.
The overall condition of each shade is very good, with the following to note: each shade has a couple teensy tears in the silk chiffon (please see pic), but they are very minor. There is some shredding to the silk rosettes in the gold metallic trim. The lining is in very good condition; with only minor wear (one lining has some tiny dark “dots” and a small discoloration). There are a few pieces of metallic fringe missing on one shade. The metal top inserts are somewhat misshapen (see pic), but I imagine with some effort you or a lamp repair person can straighten them out.
Each shade is approx. 8” long to the end of the fringe; 5” X 5” across the top; the circumference is: 19” around the center, 17” around the top & 20 ½” around the bottom.
The shades will certainly enhance any boudoir lamp; it’s rare to find such a beautiful pair.
