Exceptionally 70s in it's design, from the following areas in the 70s and 80s it will be a familiar sight! GMPTE covered Stockport, Manchester, Trafford, Salford, Tameside, Rochdale, Bury, Bolton. The busses in the 1970s and 1980s were orange and brown, and this stunning lampshade is a nod to that era.

- Bulb Advice-It is recommended to use low energy bulbs with your lampshades. Low energy bulbs will utilise less energy and are cool to the touch, thus avoiding the problem of scorching shades and ceilings.
- Testing - Our lampshade materials have been tested and passed the glow wire test performed by the Lighting Association.
