Couture Drum Lamp Shade is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 424.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shade for an unusual lamp I had a tough lamp to find a shade for, but I found it here! After searching everywhere in local stores and online, I bought this Ballard 18" shade to go with a ceramic lamp base shaped like a large, green, round ball sitting on a wooden base. The metal on the shade also had to be gold or bronze to match the lamp. This shade was the perfect size, shape, fabric (beige linen), and metal. The lamp base and shade look like they were made for each other, and the shade is of high quality. I couldn't be happier.
