CAPS and CAP SETS
 
Slag Glass Table Lamp at The Antique Lamp Co.

The advent of electricity in the early 20th century brought a new art form: table lamps with large glass shades. New glass designs, textures, and pictures could be most appreciated when illuminated with electric light. To hold these large heavy glass shades in place and finish the look of the lamp, cap and cap sets were used.

Cap Sets
 
Our sets include an aperture ring which sits on the threaded rod at the top of the socket cluster. The shade sits centered with the heat cap on top with the finial locking it in place.
