We got so many ideas from your website, we wanted to help other people with the same thing. I discovered while searching for vintage round light shades for semi flush mount fixtures, SATCO still makes a vintage shade brand new in 13 and 15 inch, with a 7/16 center hole. There are a couple of retailers that offer them, but if you search for SATCO round glass shade they should come up.
Love your site, Casey
In fact, Satco makes four different shades — two that are round, two that are square — that look to etched and/or painted with very vintage designs.
Satco also has an impressive number of diffusers in different widths and different depths, including some with patterns. My husband recently broke the diffuser on the our vintage Imperialite kitchen light while cleaning it, and my first try at finding a very-specific-required-size replacement online failed. As soon as I get a moment, I will be going through the Satco line (on same web page as the fixtures I show here) to see if I can find a fit. Wouldn’t that be amazing!
Note: If you are looking for etched shades like these, I often see them at the ReStore too. And remember, if you’re buying the entire fixtures, it’s wise to have the old wiring checked by a pro first.
Thanks, Casey! Like I said: I will be these have been around a long long time!
