Harps are flexible, often U-shaped lamp supplies that fit over a lamp’s light bulb, simultaneously protecting the bulb and providing a support for lamp shades. Generally, a harp’s base is attached to the lamp beneath the bulb. The harp’s flexible arms are then connected to the base, completing a rigid loop upon which shades, finials, and other decorative pieces can be mounted.
Lamp Harp Types
We offer both regular and heavy duty harps as well as spare harp bottoms and harps that are intended for use with metal harp cups. Our regular harps, which are available with either nickel or brass-plating, range in size from 4” to 15”, while our heavy duty harps, which are also available in nickel and brass plating, come in sizes between 7” and 15”. Our harp cups, which are also either nickel or brass-plated, measure between 6” and 9”. To make the installation of new harps easier, we can also provide the customer with harp bottoms that have either 1/4” or 1/8” slips.
