Two types of lamp shade are currently offered.

The "Lancaster" (5C/1079) style, with a 24mm hole to suit the original bulb holder. 

The "Shackleton" (bowl) style, with a 20mm hole to suit both original and modern bulb holders.

These items are not mass-produced imports or inferior efforts that perhaps may look similar to an original - but not bear close examination or directly replace it (dimensions, shape and fitment).

We take the view that the bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Therefore, we have invested in designs, jigs and tooling to ensure that manufacture, assembly and finishing of our products is of the highest standard and under the direct control of Retro3a during all stages.  

Discerning customers deserve nothing less.......

Finishes Available:

  • As-made
  • Polished
  • Brushed
  • Satin 
  • Powder coated (bead-blast surface preparation, choice of colours)
  • NEW PRODUCT - Heritage "Lancaster" (patinated - see photo)

Each lamp shade comes complete with machined and riveted mounting bosses and black fibre friction washers - just like the original. We do not use modern rivet nuts or threaded inserts. We remain 100% faithful to the original design concept and detail.

High quality stainless steel fastener and electroplated Thackray washer sets are also available. We can supply the parts that fit correctly and look right.

Retro3a - where quality, attention to detail and service come first.
