FITTING AND FINISH
Spider top, one half inch recess. Brass finish.
Top Diameter: 9 inches
Bottom Diameter: 9 inches
Height measured straight up: 9 inches
The white, pink, green and red cotton upholstery fabric has some texture to it; the green stripes are embroidered onto the fabric.
I wrapped the top and bottom wires with baby blue cotton rayon grosgrain ribbon, and then made trim for the top and bottom of the shade with a flat braid, surrounded by white cotton piping material. The flat braid goes really well with this shade, and has a bit of blue in it, thus the blue grosgrain.
This lampshade would fit a table lamp or a smaller floor lamp with a harp and finial. It could also be used on a pendant lamp.
This is a great little preppy lampshade. It emits plenty of light. Please see other sections in my shop for a large selection of handmade lampshades, finials, and lamps with custom shades. All hidden wiring is coated with enamel paint to ensure shade longevity.

SIZING A LAMPSHADE
As a general rule of thumb, know that the lampshade should never overpower the lamp. The height of the shade should be roughly two inches shorter than the lamp base. As to the diameter, it can be up to 2 to 3 times wider than the widest part of the lamp. Another consideration is how much space do you have around the lampshade?
When requesting a custom order, please let me know top x bottom x height. The height of the shade should be measured straight up, not on the slant. I will also need to know the fitting type and finish. Is it a clip top, a washer top, an uno frame? Would you like it to be flush with the top wire, or recessed? Finally, brass, nickel, or painted? Thanks!

Lint rollers work great on fabric lamp shades.
For wire mesh shades a lint free cloth and canned air will give you optimal cleaning results.
On small lamp shades it is best to use a lower wattage light bulb to avoid scorching the polystyrene lining. For the highest wattage a purchased shade can handle, please contact me.
I use mineral oil to polish lamp finials.
