The shades are ivory, but not sure if the acrylic was once white and the years have turned them to ivory. I have never seen any lamps like this. Quite the conversation piece for any room.Each is turned on and off with pull chains. They stand 24" tall 16" wide at the tops and 11 wide at the base. They have been cleaned and work perfectly.
