Cambridge Newel Post Floor Lamp with Handmade Lampshade

Antique Art Deco Newel Post Floor Lamp with Handmade Lampshade

I just finished trimming this handmade lampshade.  It looks awesome on the antique newel post lamp base.  We found the base in Cambridge, NY at an antique store and had to have it for one of my special creations.

I think the style is called art deco...not my usual Victorian type shades but close.

This shade is made from silk fabrics in green and gold.  The sage green trim accents the double layer of cream colored fringe and gold, brown, and blue scalloped, beaded fringe.  It took ten hours to create, but was worth the time and effort.

It is for sale at Exquisite Things Gift Shoppe in Bemus Point, NY.
