12" BALL SHADES with 4" FITTERS
 
Diagram of Victorian Lamp at The Antique Lamp Co.
Victorian oil lamps, Lamps, and Gone with the Wind lamps are common types which take ball shades. They originated in the kerosene-burning era of the late 1800's using central draft oil burners and were designed to impress guests. The popularity of these lamps continued well into the advent of electricity and are even today still reproduced in a variety of styles.
The appropriate size of a ball shade is determined by its diameter at the widest part of the ball. A rule of thumb is that the diameter of the ball should be equal to, or slightly larger than, the fattest part of the bottom font whether it be metal or glass.
