Glass Hurricane Shades
with 15/8" fitters
Hurricane lamp shades were originally meant to protect light flames from being snuffed out in high winds in colonial America. They made a big comeback in the 1950's in pairs of matching glass and crystal lamps which sit on either side of a dressing table. These are hence referred to as boudoir lamps. These are also used as mantle lamps. Hurricanes can also seen on chandeliers of the same era.
