    Another great lamp Morphia.
    I've said it before, but you truly have the best taste when it comes to quality table lamps.

    Are you going to make a parchment shade for it?
    I have had plans to make one for my 1025 a looong time by now, but just doesn't seem to be able to pull my finger out.
    It's a pity, because that's the best look for a 1025, and it's really nothing to it.
    One of these days... [-o< :lol:

    Very nice lamp Morphia and it looks spotless too. :thumbup:
    The parchment-shade is probably the correct:

    The link above is the recipe.
    Your shade looks cheeky though, and I think it fits your lamp well - giving this chromelook that looks so clean. Me like.

    Thanks Christer, table lamp is elegant and I'd like to collect more if possible.

    For the parchment shade, it's my next target. If I do it one day, I can make one more for you :)

    Thanks for the link Claus C. It helps a lot.

    I guess the red hat shade is from Optimus 1550.
    It comes with 1025 together and can be used when lit 1025 outdoor.

    Thanks! :lol:
    But I prefer to make missing things myself. Never really liked to let others do what I so easily can manufacture on my own, be it different things like a Lux burner in brass to a Primus shade in parchment on a steel frame.

    We all owe Bo Ryman a big debt for firstly making the efforts to take all the measurements on that old shade he found (often posted, but lastly seen in the link Claus posted above), but mainly for willingly share it all!
    Many years ago he send me a fullsize template of that shade, but also an actual sample of how the correct thread used to tie it together should look like, so I would be able to find a match as close as possible to the real deal!
    And of course also the original drawing from B.A. Hjorth.
    That's why I'm feeling a bit guilty for still not being able to present a correct 1025 shade replica after all these years. :oops:
    But as said above... One of these days. :lol:

    Very nice.
    It makes the lamp more complete. I still can't figure out why people use their indoor lamps without shades. They could just aswell have been taking a regular lantern inside the house. :doh:

    Unfortunately your shade isn't made as a Primus original.
    It's just for the record, but it isn't correct for this lamp.

    Nevertheless! still much better than using the lamp without any shade at all. :thumbup:
