Century Studios is pleased to reintroduce Slipfit Caps to our to our line of reproduction Tiffany lamp parts. We recently had our spinning jigs retooled and our Slipfit Caps are now spun as a single piece with the additional flange extending below the cap. In the past, the flange had to be added and soldered in position at the bottom of the cap.
On a lamp base with a central post, the shade rests on a cast wheel and the vent cap is held in place by screwing it in place. When a shade is mated with a lamp base with an armset, the addition of a flange that slips inside the shade ring allows a Slipfit Cap to stay in position and not slide off the top of the shade.
Available with a patina or raw brass, our Slipfit Caps fit the Tiffany 3 and 4 shade rings.
