Many of those gorgeous lamp shades that bewüder the eye trom half a dozen show windows on Fif th avenue are made at home by women who have seen the proverbial "better days." The work requires nicety of taste and skill in needlework. Designs and materials are fnrmshed sometimes by the shopkeeper, sometimes by the women that do the work. The largest shades are made over parasol frames. The materials entering into the work are silk, satín, lace and artificial flowers. Prices of the more elabórate shades vary from $16 to $50, so that the cost of a handsome lamp fnlly eqtripped may rnn up to $500. In same cases müBners also make lamp shades, and the f act that they are.able to ntinze-Tfflnnanis of silks and of other materials gives them a peculiar vantage in this business
