Sure, you can use a vintage lampshade on a lamp... but we love to repurpose them, using them as risers - because, why not?! Risers within a tablescape or buffet make your display so much more interesting! Elevate a tray, a platter. a dish or a floral arrangement, or raise a photo of a special guest at your get together! This one measures 8.75" H x 11" W.
