The Royal Square Silk Bell lampshade – sometimes referred to as a “Fancy Silk Square” lampshade – is a classic Silk Square lampshade….with an outscallop. The Royal Square Silk Bell lampshade has a square top – the size a little smaller than one half of the bottom, and the bottom of the lampshade is designed with sharp corners. Along the bottom on each of the four sides of the lampshade, there is an outscallop, meaning the side bowes out in gentle curve. And, as it’s name suggests, the Royal Square Silk Bell lampshade flares gently from the top of the shade to the bottom of the lampshade. The Royal Square Bell Silk lampshade is a fabulous design to use on lamps with both square and round elements. The one that comes to mind most quickly is an oil lamp – made from any type of glass, that has been converted to an electric lamp, and placed on a square base, such as marble or crystal. Depending upon the fabric selected – from an open weave linen or cotton to a fine pongee silk, the Royal Square Silk Bell lampshade can be used in very formal settings, or in a cottage or beach home.
