I have this antique "Saturn" lamp. My problem is I have no idea what type of lamp shade would work best with the base. For example, how do you size a lamp shade in relation to the size of the lamp base?
Does anyone have any advice on how to go about choosing a lamp shade style, color, and size?

Great Question! We do this sort of thing intuitively and would love to hear someone else's empirical solution.
If it were us, we'd go with a straight sided shade that comes down and hides only the top third of "saturn". A black shade would be totally hip with the silver. Diameter? We'd guess about 14" - a medium size shade.
