We have by this tried to illustrate what is usefull to know, if you are to order a new lampshade. We show different ways (danish style) of how to fit a lamp shade to a lamp, sizes of shades, shade racks, sockets, etc.

How to find the right lampshade

From our lamp shade numbers, (article number) you find all details about the shade, such as shape, size, type, fabric etc. (Please note the Le Klint shades and a few other kind of shades, does not match DPHs number system)

Let us use the following number as an example:

The first letter in the (varenummeret =article number) is for example an A which indicate the shape of the shade, below please find examples of shade models:


The next six digits, each with 2 digits, indicating: Height, Top size, and bottom (cm):

Please remember the height is always vertically measure, and top and bottom measure are always taken as showed below:


Type of shade

The next letter indicates the type of shade. The type of shade indicate how the shade is fastened to the lamp as well as whether the shade comes with a lid or not.

Moreover the letter tells whether it is suitable for the small E14 or the bigger E27 socket.

The video also show how to deactivate the childproofing, so the socket can be taken apart, in order to have the shade or shade rack fastened.


The type of shade indicate, (in addition to how the shade is fastened to the lamp, if the shade are with lid), if it is for a small E14 socket or for a larger E27 socket.







The socket to the left is a E27 socket with threaded sleeve for circulating rings Ø 40 mm

The right socket is a E14 socket







E27 socket with recess 34 mm

For this socket you are to use a

E14 socket, 14 mm, with candle bulb








There are three different ways of fastening the shade to the lamp:

1. Solid lampshade frame

This photo shows a shade with solid lampshade frame, however we have cut of the fabric from the shade in order to show the frame inside the shade.

We here show how the solid frame fits directly to a E27 socket with threaded sleeve with circulating rings Ø 40 mm. This applys when the type is B and R.
Remember that it takes a socket with threaded sleeve and that this way of fixing the shade to the lamp leaves you with little room for adjustment of the length of shade.



If you have a lamp with recess, it takes 2 pcs. of these rings for your shade to be fastened to the socket.

(Buy the rings here)

On a socket with recess, it is not possible to adjust the height of the shade.





From this photo you can see how the rings makes it possible to fix the solid frame.

On a socket with recess, it is not possible to adjust the height of the shade.

If the type letter is C or S the shade also comes with a solid frame. The different is that with shade with these letters are made for the smaller E14 socket with threaded sleeve.





2. Loosen lampshade racks for a carrier ring

From the video you will see how the shade is placed on the shade rack, and how the shade rack is fixed to the socket (Lamp).

The loose shade rack can have a diameter of 34mm at the bottom, this fits to a socket with recess. It can also have a diameter of 40mm, this fits to a socket that has a threaded sleeve with circulating rings.

Fixing your shade to your lamp with a loose lampshade rack, gives you great opportunity to adjust the height of the shade.


When the type-letter is an A or P, the lampshade has a carrier ring which is put on the shade rack.




Shade racks 34 mm and 40 mm

The carrier ring in the shade always has a diameter of 10 cm. It can be applied on almost every kind of shade frames.







3. Bulb clamp:

When the letter is D, E, F, T, U and V, the shade is fixed to the bulb by a bulb clamp.








The letter indicates which type of bulb the bulb clamp is suitable for.

The letters D and T is for globe bulbs. Which is made for both E27 sockets and E14 sockets.








The letters F and V is for standard bulb.








The letters E and U is for candle bulb.








Shades with lid:

When the type-letters are A-B-C-D-E-F the shades are delivered with lid in the top of the shade, if the types are P-R-S-T-U-V the shade are without top lid.


Shade fabric - number 06 indicate the fabric (Off white silke)


Braids - Number 71 indicate the braid on the shade (71 is off white braids)


Please ignore the last letter, in this example K, it is for in-house use only.

Delivery of items in stock

All items currently in stock are items that we currently have stored at our warehouse.

Items in stock are normally shipped immediately (within 1-4 business days). When your payment has been confirmed by us, you will receive an order confirmation.

Should the time of delivery be delayed beyond normal (i.e. orders of large quantity) we will let you know.

Delivery of customised/special ordered items and items not in stock

Customised/special ordered items and items not in stock are all items we do not currently store at our warehouse.

In some situations it can be impossible for DPH Trading to predict the exact time of delivery if the items are specially ordered or customised.

Sometimes the items have to be produced from scratch. If the particular item is of significant age we may have to rely on private collectors who are willing to sell.

All the customised/special ordered items are delivered as close to the agreed delivery date as possible.

DPH Trading could take precautions for the delivery of entire or parts of an order. Part deliveries can occur. We always strive to inform you as quickly and efficiently as possible, should any deliveries change or be divided into separate deliveries.

In extraordinary situations negotiations can be made where the buyer are not responsible for the extra delivery cost in case of part deliveries.
