Conservatory Lantern Shade - 14" - Solid Copper
Conservatory Lantern Shade - Solid Copper
In our brick & mortar store is a distressed metal conservatory and hanging from the rafters are two hand-made lantern shades. They look so amazing that we decided to make more...so that you could enjoy them. Measuring close to 14" tall and 8" in diameter, we made available two versions: one that's solid copper (amazing) and the other is finished in a distinctive Antique Black. These new shades have a unique look that you simply can't find anywhere else. Enjoy.

*This shade may be shown with hardware, bulbs, and parts for finished photographic purposes. This listing is for the shade only....nothing else is included.
Disclaimer: *Please note that this product may have nicks, scratches, smudges, tool marks, embellishments, flawed finish, etc. We’ve done this purposely to create a character not found on modern day off-the-shelf products to differentiate our products from others. Finishes are not meant to be perfect, but old and grungy looking. You're welcome! All of the blemishes and imperfections are included at no additional charge. If you're looking for mass-produced parts with perfect finishes and no flaws, then most of our products are not for you. In other words, if you're very "particular", we recommend that you visit some of those big box stores (and some of our competitors) so you can buy the same parts/supplies everyone else has… just say’n. :)
Our Final Light Assembly...Helpful Hints
Not sure what particular parts you're going to use to make this Lantern Shade into a light, but we used the following parts for ours in the photos:
6" Copper Tube
2" Threaded Rod (nipple)
1 Female Strain Relief for the top
Cloth-Covered Wire (any length and color you desire)
You can certainly substitute any of your own parts/supplies or any others that we have. This is just how we made it. You may want to assemble it differently.
We started by attaching a 2" threaded rod to the female strain relief. We put the threaded rod through the hole with the female strain relief on top of lantern. Underneath, we attached the coupling to the threaded rod. We then screwed the 6" tube into that coupling and put a socket and bulb on the bottom end of the 6" tube. This is the general view of how it all went together. We always recommend that you "dry-fit" everything together before adding wire and doing final assembly/connections.
As always, when assembling/connecting electrical parts, we recommend you seek a qualified electrician if you're unsure of what to do. :)
