BOULLIOTTE SHADES
Bouillotte Lamp at The Antique Lamp Co.

The Boulliotte name comes from a French card game popular in the late 1700's. Original Boulliotte lamps were candle lamps under which the game was played. These brass desk lamps had wax candles with a shade around them to reduce the candles' glare. They also had an adjustable center rod that allowed the shade to be adjusted up or down and a bowl-shaped base for the game chips. In the 1930's, electrified versions of Boulliotte lamps became popular. Their characteristics remained the same but they were more for dιcor than for function.

Boulliotte shades were originally made of tin or brass so that they wouldn't catch on fire from the candles. Fabric Boulliotte shades were introduced with the electrified versions. Today, any shade that is squatty with a large top and bottom, but a shallow height is considered a Boulliotte shade.
