Same here, I prefer shades that conceal the bulb as well. Although if there's something really nice I won't let being able to see the bulb stop me from going for it! :)

Thanks for your comments!

I now much prefer energy-saving bulbs and originally these were simply too long and 'dangly' to use properly. But the modern spiral ones are very compact and can put out quite a powerful light but, more importantly, lower heat.

The stag lampshade is actually quite small (about 6" across the points) so will probably be put to use in the landing where lower light is all that's required. Suppose I could adapt it for table lamp, though :idea:  :idea: 8)

Here's one of the opposite side of the stag shade, showing different detail:

Very pretty...

I just love your pink roses shade Sue... it's fabulous!   8)

Funnily enough I recently bought (and am awaiting delivery of) a pink bowl with similar roses feet and kept thinking why does it look familiar... it was the half-memory of your lampshade that was niggling away in my head but I couldn't recall where I'd seen it and who owned it.  :roll:

Promise I'll redo them - and my "NEW" deco pink flowery one too, possibly French, very soon. ;D

It does not yet seem to have been mentioned that my Rose one has been identified as Jobling, as is my brother's opalescent humming bird one, which he still won't give me. He deserves the"family" title of meanie-bathbun for this. :'(
