The Old Spanish Mission is a design style used to create surroundings that are authentic and spirited. The period of Old Mission was difficult for the Spaniards as the Mexican government vied for control of the American Western Frontier. There was little or no money so shelter and safety were needed for the destitute Spaniards. This is when the Missions began to develop and decorative tin accents were created. The Spaniards used whatever materiel they could find and the designs created were minimalistic and charming. This shade weighs 9 lbs and can tolerate a 60-watt bulb. There is a one-year limited warranty. Material:
