Clean and classic, our British Empire shade is a classic shape that never goes out of style. Slightly tapered in a typical Empire lamp shade shape, with a durable hardbacked lining and made from superior-quality Pongee silk. This shade, when laminated and a hand-rolled edge brings a very contemporary clean look.
Usually, when in fabric fits a more transitional style, it comes in a hardback construction.
Solution: This is a great replacement shade for some drums and empire styles. If you have 2-3 interior light bulbs that are causing the yellowing on the lining or lining ripping this may also solve that problem, and providing an updated look.

Silk is the fabric of luxury. For thousands of years, silk has been a coveted export, bringing a sense of elegance and sophistication to everything from scarves to curtains.
Pongee — Originating in the forests of Asia, pongee silk is crisp, sturdy and has no noticeable slubs. The thin, tight weave of the fabric has made it a favorite for centuries, and clothing makers first used it to line kimonos in ancient China.
When to use: Choose a silk lampshade for rooms where the fabric's romance, luxuriousness, and elegance will be a perfect fit.
