Let's start with the lamp base.
Now it’s time to pack the lamp shade.
Use a sturdy carton at least two inches bigger all around than the largest shade. Line it with clean paper, using crushed paper under the lamp shade to create a protective layer, but don't put crushed paper around the sides of the shade. Hold the shade by its wire rim and place the shade in the box. Try to avoid touching the sides of the shade. Then spread several pieces of clean packing paper neatly over the shade. A smaller shade may be nested inside a larger one, provided they do not touch. Only one silk shade should be placed in a carton to avoid stretching the silk. Do not pack other items with shades, and never wrap lamp shades in newspaper, as the ink will soil the shade. Label cartons “Lamp Shades- Fragile- Top Load Only.”
It is best to have your moving professional crate large leaded or other glass lamp shades.

That is a very useful article! You might be surprised but I am crazy about lamps and I have about ten at my small apartment consisting of two rooms. Now I am going to move out and I didn't know how will I handle with the lamps. Thanks a lot! Rose
