Restore a Square Bell

One of the most beautiful lampshade shapes, is the Square Bell.  As we hardly see or find it to buy in South Africa, clients often ask me to recover and restore these shades.  Herewith pics of a recent restored shade:

This is the old shade:

Here, we have stripped the old fabric, cover the outside with a cinamon colour silk, and lined it with an off-white lining:

We have finished off the shade with a self-fold trim in the same fabric:

And this is the final product!
