Blenko Glass. Heart of Glass Blog. Is Your Vintage Blenko Lamp Missing a Shade? Blenko Glass Company. Heart of Glass Blog

For the decade plus, we've been doing the BLENKO PROJECT at least one person each month ask about shades for their Blenko Lamps.
I've always suggested the So Charleston Lamp and Shade Shop.
Recently BLENKO GLASS started carrying a made in USA, shade.
It's more reasonable that the shades I've purchased from specialty shops.


Natural Burlap or Warm White Linen.
Spider Fitter. Brass.
Dimensions: 18”x17”x10” (Bottom diameter, Top diameter, Height)
These are custom made lampshades handmade in America please allow 4-6 week lead time.
