Lampshades that require a ring
fitter to slip over a glass chimney can be used on most
electrified oil lamps, as shown below. If the lamp is still being used with
kerosene, we would recommend
that common sense be used to make sure the heat from the flame is
not too hot that
there would become an issue with the shade overheating and warping
or even causing a fire.

Like all lampshades, a chimney
ring fitter lampshade has three measurements:
Top, Bottom, and Slant.
However, with the
chimney ring fitter it is also important to make sure the ring that
slides over the chimney is the correct size. The larger the ring the
further the shade
will drop down on the chimney and lamp. And, as with all lampshades,
we need to
know how far from the top of the shade the ring is recessed.
So, simply provide us with the
following information and we will provide you
with the correct lampshade to fit over your glass chimney:
1. Top diameter
2. Bottom Diameter
3. Slant measurement
4. Fitter Type (in the case - Chimney Ring)
5. Ring diameter (use inside measurement
as shown in the picture above)
6. Recess of the fitter
7. Fabric Choice (see
