A few years back, a mother and her two daughters decided to convert a shared passion in Victorian Lampshades and Victoriana into a business. Thus, Esther Hoyt, Lena Carman and Nellie Zimmerman, all from Colorado USA, started Victorian Shades of the Past and the trademark Shades of the Past™.

We take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of each and every Victorian lampshade we create. All our catalog shades are made with the same passion we make our own lampshades – if it’s not good enough for us, it’s not good enough for you!

We have developed several unique styles of shade in the authentic Victorian tradition, and our Exquisite Rosettes are our speciality. We dare say that you will not find these Rosettes anywhere else and you will love these beautiful embellishments!

Victorian Shades may be ordered with our offered styles, but we are more than happy to customize most styles for you. We can also recover your old Victorian lampshade frame according to your requirements and restore it to its former beauty!

Please feel free to browse our large selection of Victorian accessories and Victoriana. We are sure you’ll find something that compliments your Victorian lampshade!

We strive for total customer satisfaction and encourage clients, both prospective and existing, to contact us at anytime!

Victorian Wishes!
Esther, Lena & Nellie
