If you’re decorating your home in Steampunk decor, these Victorian fringe lamp shades will help you to do the job perfectly.
Victorian fringe lamp shades became popular in the Victorian era when the invention of the light bulb came around in 1879. This is when the Victorian fringe lamp shades craze began amongst the more rich members of Victorian society. The shades were created in order to cover the bright light of the bulb, as lamp shades nowadays also do.
The fringe lamp shades are extremely detailed and intricate, with most being shaped in a floral shape, or containing a floral pattern on them. This is of course because of the Victorian era’s obsession with the floral pattern. The lamps tended to have a pull chain, and all of them of course had the fringe feature. So let’s take a look at some of the best Victorian fringe lamp shades that are available today.
This one is a high lamp shade, shaped almost like a circus tent. It is an ivory colour with a gold trim. The fringes on the lamp shade are all ivory, with a fringe around not only the bottom of the lamp shade, but the top too. There are also ivory tassels dotted around the bottom of the lamp shade. It’s a wonderfully elegant lamp shade that will bring the vintage look to your home decor.

This lamp shade is also an ivory colour, but it has silver detailing on the lamp shade. A silver floral pattern covers the shade, and around the top is a thick lace silver edging. This same edging forms eye shapes around the bottom of the lamp shade. The fringe on this lamp shade is formed of beaded strings of gold, silver, and white that wrap around the whole of the bottom of the lamp shade. It is more modern in style, but definitely still has the key elements of a vintage Victorian lamp shade.
This is a beautifully elegant lamp shade, with perhaps some oriental influence too. The lampshade is red with gold trimmings. The gold edges the top of the lamp shade, and the fringe is also gold, although it also has strings of red and gold beads hanging from the base of the lamp shade. The lamp shade also has a colourful floral pattern on every second slat of the lamp shade, making sure that the design does not look too busy and bold. The edging around the bottom of the shade is dark red and gold with an elegant pattern. This lamp shade is truly gorgeous and will make the perfect addition to your Steampunk interior.
This lamp shade does look slightly more modern with the primary element being the colourful peacock feathers that cover the lamp shade. The shade contains a gold trim and a gold fringe along the bottom. There are also green beads strung up from the base of the lamp shade.
This lamp shade is slightly more gothic Victorian in style. It has a similar peacock pattern as before, and it also has a gold trim. The fringe in this lamp is black however, and the strung beads are black and gold. It’s an elegant and unusual lamp that will look perfect amongst your gothic Victorian decor.
This one looks like something from the mad hatter’s tea party with its bright purple, blue, green, and pink colours. The lamp shade is primarily purple, with every second lamp shade slat being covered in a floral pattern that features bright blues, greens, and pinks. The trim is gold, and the fringe is purple as well as the beaded strings. It’s a bright and colourful design that is bound to brighten up your home.
Another gorgeous and elegant design, this lamp shade is primarily black, with bright colours coming through on the lamp shade that is decorated with butterflies and flowers. The trim is gold and the beaded strings are gold and red atop the black fringe. It’s a gorgeous lamp that looks at the Victorian eras obsession with botany and florals.
This lamp shade has less bright colours, looking almost like subtle water colours. It is primarily black with subtly coloured flowers and birds dotted around the design. The trim is a not so bright gold, and the fringe of the lamp shade is black with black beaded strings also hanging from the lamp shade. This is definitely more gothic in appearance due to the lack of bright colours, and will look great if your decor is primarily gothic Victorian.
