I have one 'slight second' 45cm Japanese Maple lampshade, made for a lamp fitting (not ceiling). It has two minor faults which are just about visible from the inside (although hard to find), and as far as I can tell, not visible from the outside.
Please see the photographs for reference - there are two small notches, each around 1 or 2 cm in length. These take some finding so are not immediately obvious even when you know to look for them. I cant see any evidence of them being visible from the outside. The shade is available at 30% discount on the usual price. The photographs show what the notches look like on the inside, and show the outside areas of the shade which correspond to where they are.
The following is the product description for this shade...
Drum lampshade featuring 'Japanese Maple' design by Lily Greenwood. Featuring rich natural colours, a beautiful finishing touch to any room.
These lampshades are handmade in Cumbria using 'Suede Vision' fabric printed in the UK. Suede Vision is soft, smooth and luxurious with a slight nap and matt finish. It is also fire-retardant, water-repellent and durable (Martindale rub tested) making it ideal for home furnishings.
Suitable for any standard Bayonet cap (BC) light fitting, the most common type of lamp fitting in the UK today. It can also be used with Edison Screw (E27) lamp holders, most common in Europe - simply remove the converter plug in the centre of the fitting.
Please note the lamp bases shown in the photographs are for illustrative purposes only - this listing is for the shade only.
