During the Victorian era lighting was primarily from gas. But with Edison's improved design of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, electric lighting began replacing gas lighting in Victorian homes. This change became the catalyst for a variety of lamp shades made to shield the glaring light bulbs.
One of the most popular special effects is the \"rosette\". Here again the flower theme is repeated with sewing techniques that result in rose-like puffs. Usually they are combined with pleating or shirring that finishes the look. Another method is \"fan pleating\" - a pattern that is reminiscent of the fans used by Victorian ladies to cool themselves. Lace or burn-out velvet are often sewn on adjoining panels.
Check the mounting areas of your plug in hanging lamp to avoid heat-producing systems or components like an exhaust system. Enough airspace should be provided to transfer heat properly. The lamp lens must be free of dirt and kept clean to help lower the temperature.
