4" GAS SHADES
 
Gas Hanging Lamp at The Antique Lamp Co.

By the early 1800's, most large American cities had public gaslight until electric lighting took its place in the later part of the century. Early electricity, however, was undependable and lighting fixtures that could use both gas and electric became popular, although short-lived.

In general, whether a vintage fixture was "born" electric or gas, is generally determined by which direction the shades face, either up or down. Shades that face upwards were made to accommodate gas jets and are generally larger, usually with 4" fitters. Shades which face downwards were made for electric light bulbs and have smaller 21/4" fitters. Although there are exceptions, this is a good rule of thumb to go by.
