Large wooden lampshade wood straw string DEFORMED, 1960s
Delivering from: Lisbon, Portugal
A project for those who like DIY and who knows how to transform wood.
This Portuguese 1960s hand-made hanging lamp shade has been deformed by time and storage conditions. Nevertheless it partly maintained its beauty and it would be a pity to waste such an example of vintage craftsmanship!
So, if you can work with wood and think that you can make it work, this is for you!
Material: plywood and synthetic material that resembles straw. New electrical installation, plastic white ceiling cup.
Globe height is 20cm/~8´´
Diameter is 45cm/~18´´
Bottom ring is deformed. One of the sides is curved. No cracks, not broken.

If you have any questions, we are happy to answer them.
All ceiling pendant lamps and wall mounted lamps are hardwired, so they will work in any country.
All table/desk lamps have European 2-pin wall plug, so you may need a country-specific wall plug adapter, or change wall plug.
Shipping guarantee: We assume full responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur during the shipping.

20 Century Lights
We are 2 people passionate about vintage lighting. We source our items all over Europe, but mostly in Portugal.
We run our small business out of out garage, filled with hundreds of vintage lamps.
Please contact the seller for a delivery quote or enquiries using the ‘Ask Seller’ form below.
If the lamps are in good condition, we sell them as are, because many buyers appreciate the authentic vintage items without any interference. If they need to be repaired, we use a local lamp repair shop, where parts may be replaced with working vintage parts. Normally we also install new electrical wires.
The plug in lamps will come with a 2 pin EU wall plug. It is easy to change a plug to a UK plug, or use a travel wall plug adapter.
We test all lamps to ensure that they are being shipped in working condition. We do not provide guarantees for vintage items. However, we may be able to provide post sale support (for example later on if the client accidentally broke a glass globe, we may be able to find and send exactly the same).
We do however assume 100% responsibility for any eventual postal damage or loss.
