interior wall lights

anyone know where I can obtain a close match to the material in the late 50's, early 60's wall lights? they have the gold trim and the shade seems to be a cellulose type material but the 110 volt light bulbs have burnt a black spot in this shade material over the years.

am thinking of buying a lamp shade or cellulose window shade to cut up and put in the metal holders.......

any other ideas?

Hmmm I'd look at some of the plastic films...

Check this out: Rowlux® Illusion Plastic Optical Illusion Polycarbonate Plastic Film

I've not used this, but it looks neat...
